Stav Meishar is a true renaissance woman, determined to leave no performance skill unexplored.
Born and raised in Israel, Stav had her professional stage debut at the age of ten on the Israeli National Tour of Oliver!, and hasn’t left the stage since.
Stav is a graduate of Israel’s prestigious performing arts high school Thelma-Yellin, where she graduated cum laude as a theater major, with leading roles in all productions. During her school years, she won the International French Chansons Competition twice, which sent her to study for two summers in the French countryside; and performed at one of Israel’s top theaters Beit Lessin.
After playing Elphaba in the Israeli premiere of the musical Wicked Stav moved to New York City to pursue her musical theatre education, and since graduating she’s been working as a performer all over America and overseas.
Though Stav is a traditional Thespian by training, she’s been experimenting with different performance arts including ukulele playing, aerial dancing and poi spinning, and she enjoys combining her love of theater with her more unusual skills.
Stav is a proud founding member of ISRAMERICA, the non-profit organization that showcases Israeli and Jewish-American artists and performers all around the USA.
“I am proud to be an Israeli performer working in NYC. My roots and my upbringing always come through in the art that I create and in the way I perform- there’s a ferocity that goes hand in hand with being Israeli, a fire and a passion that never cease.”
