Dynamic writing team Michael Kooman and Christopher Dimond have announced that the world premiere recording of their musical The Noteworthy Life of Howard Barnes will be released on Friday, September 13, 2019.  After completing three seasons of music for the hit Disney Junior series “Vampirina,” which airs in 115 countries to more than 100 million viewers, the Fred Ebb Award and Jonathan Larson Grant winners return to their theatrical roots with this album.  To order the album, visit KoomanDimond.com/store.

Called “uproariously funny and surprisingly touching” by The Seattle Times, The Noteworthy Life of Howard Barnes follows Howard Barnes, a perfectly average man until the day that he wakes up to discover that his life has become a musical. Desperate to escape from the show, Howard embarks on a fantastical quest through the realm of musical theater. Equal parts satire, romantic comedy, and love letter to the American musical, The Noteworthy Life of Howard Barnes is a musical for people who love musical theater, and their spouses who hate it.
