Anthony Patellis

Anthony enjoys working with youth actors at DMO workshops, and improvisation classes. Paying forward his experiences studying with prolific teachers, Lee Strasberg, Stella Adler, Cheryl Crawford, Harold Clurman, Ed Kovens, and many others, is an important component to his personal growth as an actor, director, teacher, and artist. Acting and directing has taken Anthony throughout the United States, and to nearly twenty countries, on three continents. His numerous stage performances are as diverse as WEST SIDE STORY, at La Scala Opera House, in Milan, Italy, to the longest running Off-Broadway improvisational hit show, TONY ’N TINA’S WEDDING, in New York City. He has guest starred on televisions, GOTHAM, THE SOPRANOS, LAW & ORDER, NEW YORK UNDERCOVER, CRIME STORY, FAMILY TIES, THE GUIDING LIGHT. His films include; ONE LAST THING, I THINK I DO, THE GRIFT, and TEAM MARCO, which will be reeased in theaters later this year. His television directorial debut, HOOKED, is currently making film festival rounds, most recently the Cannes Festival, in the South of France. It has so far enjoyed eight “Best Short Film” awards.
