ISAAC “IZZY” SALANT is a native Marylander who’s loved writing and theater from an early age, so much so that he decided to freeze to death for four years to study Theater and Journalism at the University of Massachusetts Amherst. He then realized he preferred the warmth and relocated to Los Angeles, where he now serves as a Jewish Education specialist at Hillel at UCLA. Plays include Rite of Passage, which was workshopped at the Kennedy Center Playwright Intensive, Unrequited, The Scenic View, and Peace Talks, the latter of which was showcased through the David Project. Acting credits include Hamlet (Hamlet), Dr. Frank N Furter (The Rocky Horror Show), Antonio (The Tempest), and featured ensemble in the world premiere of Infants of the Spring by Ifa Bayeza. He is also a practicing magician.
