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

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

The Importance of Being Earnest(ly LGBTQ+)
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 (“It is awfully hard work doing nothing”).”
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, Stage Buddy
