News   THE SCREENING ROOM: Anderson Davis Sings Michael Kooman & Christopher Dimond's "Someday Soon," About Graduating College
 
Anderson Davis, who was seen on Broadway in Les Misérables, stars in the new music video "Someday Soon," penned by songwriting duo Michael Kooman and Christopher Dimond about being a new college graduate.

Alberto Belli, director of the viral video "For Your Consideration," helmed "Someday Soon," which features Davis (South Pacific national tour, Damn Yankees at City Center Encores!) as a recent college grad.

"Someday Soon," according to press notes, tells "the story of a recent college graduate who is unemployed, drowning in debt, yet full of hope. The musical characterizes the current situation that more than two million graduates will face this year. With the recent news that in July interest rates for student loans will double, the musical begs the question, is it even worth going to college or getting a master's degree?"

Kooman and Dimond received the 2010 Jonathan Larson Grant and are the first recipients of the Lorenz Hart Award. Their musical Dani Girl (now published by Samuel French) has been workshopped at the Kennedy Center, American Conservatory Theatre, Cherry Lane Theatre, the ASCAP/Disney Musical Theater Workshop, the Festival of New American Musicals and was featured in the 2011 NAMT Festival of New Musical. In 2013, their musical Orphie and the Book of Heroes will premiere at the Kennedy Center. Their original musical The Noteworthy Life of Howard Barnes will be part of the 2013 O'Neill Music Theater Conference. Currently, they are under commission from the Pittsburgh CLO. Their debut album, "Out Of Our Hears," is available on iTunes.
