Upcoming Shows

Penobscot Theatre Company Presents:
February 9th – March 5th, 2023
Bangor Opera House
131 Main Street, Bangor, Maine

I’ll be debuting the role of Dr. Izzy Mundt in the World Premiere of Andy Eninger & Larrance Fingerhut’s comedy musical romp about love and lobstering, Trapped! The Musical. “


“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.”
John R. Ziegler and Leah Richards, Thinking Theater NYC

Tammany Hall
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

Anello shines as Betty Compton. Her two “Violet” numbers were probably the best part of the show.”
Bill Canacci, Asbury Park Press

“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!”
Cindy Sibilsky, Broadway World

The Importance of Being Earnestly LGBTQ+
“Lauren E King’s Miss Prism and Marie Anello’s Dr. Chasuble are both winning, steadfast and daffy.” 
Darryl Reilly,

The love affair between Prism and Dr. Chasuble, played by Marie Anello, is moving in a play that ridicules moving emotions — or any movement at all.”
Michael Tingley, Theater Pizzazz 

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.”
Navida Stein, StageBuddy
