Faber has appeared in off-Broadway shows including Saved! at Playwright's Horizons, Slut, and The Tutor. Faber also previously worked in the TheatreWorks musical Junie B. Jones. Mary helped to develop the character of Natalie in Feeling Electric (which would eventually be redeveloped into the Pulitzer Prize winning Next to Normal). She starred in The Corn is Green alongside Kate Burton at the Huntington Theater in Boston. Between theater jobs, Faber is known to moonlight at improvisational clubs including the Upright Citizens Brigade, The Riot Act, and The Second City.
Faber originated the role of Heather in the musical American Idiot while the show was being developed at Berkeley Repertory Theatre. She continued the role of Heather from the opening of its Broadway run until December 12, 2010.
