Marie Anello is a classically trained mezzo-soprano with experience in opera, musical theater, cabaret, jazz, voice acting, and drama.
Marie has had the pleasure of performing with companies like Write Act Repertory, New York City Opera, Encompass New Opera Theatre, and the Pittsburgh Festival Opera Young Artist Program. Most recently she appeared as Betty Compton in Soho Playhouse’s immersive theater production, Tammany Hall.
Marie also works as a writer and editor, specializing in book reviews, publishing industry journalism, and graphic novels.
“The classically trained Anello is a powerful and expressive singer[…] Spektorology gives those familiar with Spektor’s oeuvre to encounter it in a new way and from a new perspective, but you don’t have to be a fan to enjoy this rousing, emotive musical experience.”
“As Compton, Anello exudes genuine angst about the plight of a friend who has been ensnared in Tammany’s web. She tries in vain to discover her whereabouts, before expressing her magnificent breakdown in an 11 o’clock number that really could be on a Broadway stage”
Zachary Stewart, TheaterMania
“Not since Hamilton arrived on Broadway has reliving New York history been this fun, clever, or creative. However, in Tammany Hall, you get to partake in history as it unfolds in the very place where it happened. I wholeheartedly cast my vote (or several) for Tammany Hall as one of the best immersive theatrical experiences in New York City!”

“Lauren E King’s Miss Prism and Marie Anello’s Dr. Chasuble are both winning, steadfast and daffy.”

A Wake or A Wedding
“Ms. Rhodes has assembled a good cast of singers who act convincingly — especially Ms. Anello, who possesses a sweet, clear voice and sings with beautiful simplicity a soaring aria about traveling the world through her imagination just by touching different fabrics.”
