Composer, music director, and orchestrator Anessa Marie presents an evening of music from A First Glimpse of Light, a semi-autobiographical new musical telling the story of a 32 year old trans actress as she prepares for gender confirmation surgery in New York City. Featuring a cast of voices of varying identities that is majority transgender and gender nonconforming, performing a jazz-influenced score with sweeping piano, a 5-piece band, and lush harmony, this evening promises to be a celebration of relationships with others and ourselves. Directed by Dev Bondarin, with music direction by James Rushin.
