Sean is an actor, producer and writer based in Brooklyn, NY. He can be seen in Julian Fellowes’ The Chaperone opposite Elizabeth McGovern and Haley Lu Richardson, and in Comedy Central’s sketch show Alternatino with Arturo Castro. He starred in the New York Times critics’ pick Private Romeo (Outstanding Actor in a Feature Film, HBO Outfest), an adaptation of Shakespeare’s Romeo & Juliet set in a military academy. Theatre includes leading roles in world premieres of Vilna (off-Broadway) and She Calls Me Firefly (SoHo Playhouse); Sex with Strangers (Cleveland Play House; Best Actor, Cleveland Critics Circle); Nine seasons with the Shakespeare Theatre of NJ; Alabama Shakespeare Festival; LA Theatre Works; Arena Stage.
He is a co-creator alongside Deborah Yarchun and Illana Stein of Hans & Sophie, a new play inspired by two students who led an underground Nazi resistance movement. Hans & Sophie received five 2020 Dallas Fort Worth Theatre Critics Awards including Outstanding New Play and Outstanding Actor following its world premiere at Amphibian Stage.
In 2020, he launched Knock at the Gate, an immersive audio production company which tests the boundaries of immersion and resonance through a series of hi-fi Shakespeare inspired 3D audio experiences designed for a pair of headphones and the dark. The company’s first project Macbeth: A Surround Sound Experiment was featured in the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, American Theatre Magazine and Good Day New York, streaming to listeners around the world in late October 2020 to benefit The Actors Fund. Knock at the Gate broadcast its second immersive audio project Caesar: A Surround Sound Experiment in late May 2021 to acclaim from listeners and critics around the world for The Actors Fund. The company has since raised nearly $15,000 for arts workers affected by the pandemic.
Producing includes the commercial transfer of Bess Wohl’s Small Mouth Sounds, the development of new works which have premiered at Arena Stage and Primary Stages, and the upcoming world premiere of Swept Away at Berkeley Rep with a book by John Logan, direction by Michael Mayer and music and lyrics by The Avett Brothers.
