Isaac Josephthal is a New York based actor and artist. Originally from Mooresville, NC, as a youth he studied and performed with many local Charlotte companies such as Children’s Theatre Charlotte, Theatre Charlotte, the Davidson Community Players and the Mooresville Children’s Theatre, among others. Upon graduating high school, he went on to higher education at New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts. While at Tisch, he studied extensively in the Meisner program (under the tutelage of Victoria Hart; a first generation Sanford Meisner disciple) and then went on to the Stonestreet Film Conservatory to study acting for the camera. Since graduating, he has toured throughout Europe with the French National Theatre three times, and was lucky enough to help bring their production of Julius Caesar to the States in 2019. He has also worked with The Pearl Theatre Company, one of off-Broadway’s few singular classical stage companies. He also continues to work outside of New York, having last been seen in the regional premiere of If I Forget at Barrington Stage Co. in Massachusetts; a piece by the writer of the acclaimed Dear Evan Hansen. In the past year, Isaac has gained leverage in the TV scene — co-starring in HBO’s Divorce and finally in Starz’s Hightown, which will premiere in 2020.

I started with Musical Theatre when I was about 14 years old. Every year since then, I’ve been involved with theatre – on or off stage. I’ve been the director of the annual high school musical at SouthLake Christian for three years now, and I have appeared in shows at The Warehouse and The Greenroom.
