General Admission $12

Anessa Marie and Danny Bristoll are thrilled to be debuting FINDING BEAUTIFUL, a refreshing, pared-down version of their original concert, Beautiful as a part of Tankaret. Featuring many never-before-heard songs, FINDING BEAUTIFUL focuses primarily on the often troubled, sometimes heartbreaking, yet optimistic life perspective of those within the LGBTQ+ community from day to day. Following their success of Beautiful along with a concert reading of their musical, A Glimpse of the Rainbow, Anessa and Danny can not wait to share a more intimate experience of the music.

The writing team has worked together to create a musical style that is both contemporary yet familiar to many theatre audiences. Their songs center on themes of LGBTQ+ and woman’s stories from their unique perspective all while celebrating the strengths overcoming adversity offers.


Tank-aret is a monthly cabaret series now in its second year at The Tank. Curated by musical theater writing team EllaRose Chary and Brandon James Gwinn (Dramatists Guild Fellows; Ars Nova Uncharted Residents; Cotton Candy and Cocaine; TL;DR: Thelma Louise: Dyke Remix). Every month Tank-aret will feature an evening of exciting new work by artists not traditionally represented in cabaret and musical theater spaces. The intention is to lift up the voices of women, queer and trans artists, artists of color, differently abled artists, and anyone else who has some cabaret magic!
