A Concert for Sugihara
April 19, 7:00pm
Carnegie Hall – Stern Auditorium / Perelman Stage
881 Seventh Ave New York, NY 10019
“A concert commemorating the heroism of Chiune Sugihara, Japanese Vice-Consul to Lithuania, who saved thousands of Jewish refugees during WWII. The performance will feature the American Premiere of Lera Auerbach’s Symphony No. 6, Vessels of Light, dedicated to Sugihara and all those who risk everything to save others.”
Trapped! The Musical
“Anello, a newcomer to the PTC stage, is a delight as Izzy. She combines comedic chops (she’s somewhat reminiscent of Tina Fey, both physically and vibes-wise) with an absolutely exceptional voice.”
Allen Adams, The Maine Edge
“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
“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
