Contemporary Theater Spotlights
To say that 2019 was a banner year for alumnus Marchánt Davis (B.F.A. '13, musical theater) is an understatement. He starred alongside Anna Kendrick in the satire The Day Shall Come—his first lead role in a feature film—which he landed just six months after graduating from the Graduate Acting Program at NYU Tisch. Whether on the big screen or the stage, you’ll find Davis in fiercely original, provocative projects of depth and social significance.
Sharmarke Yusuf (B.F.A. '20, contemporary theater) has long had an interest in writing, and he began to take it seriously as an area of focus after taking a playwriting class at the Conservatory. He is currently pursuing a creative writing minor, which includes Berklee College of Music courses.
