Marchánt Davis

Marchánt Davis on Pushing Boundaries and Telling Stories that Matter

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.
