An accomplished stage actor, Hagerty received the Drama Critics Award for her role in Raised in Captivity and the Theatre World Award (an accolade given to Broadway's most outstanding newcomer) for John Guare's The House of Blue Leaves. Her stage credits also include The Odd Couple, Moon Over Miami, Born Yesterday, Front Page, and A.R. Gurney's A Cheever Evening.
