Based in an oddly shaped Upper West Side apartment, Isabella loves the hustle and bustle of being a working actor in NYC.
Favorite regional credits include: Natalie in Next to Normal (Riverside Theatre), Sophie in Mamma Mia! (Virginia Musical Theatre), Natalya in the regional premier of Dave Malloy’s Preludes (Firehouse Theatre), Violet in A Charlie Brown Christmas (National Tour- Gershwin Entertainment), and Miss Lark/Ensemble in Mary Poppins (Virginia Repertory Theatre). BFA- Virginia Commonwealth University.
You can often find Isabella walking her adorably scruffy mutt around Central Park, reading on a packed train in between personal training clients, or enjoying an overpriced cocktail and cheese plate at a local spot.

"Superboy and the invisible girl" as Natalie in Next to normal
Isabella recently finished up a run as Natalie in Next to Normal at Riverside Theatre in Vero Beach, Florida
"But it is Eric Kunze and Isabella Stansbury who win our hearts here from the get-go. They turn in winning portrayals of Dan, the father, and Natalie, the daughter. They not only sing beautifully, but they also dig into the souls of their characters and serve up the big emotion often missing from the show’s first act." -Pam Harbaugh, Brevard Culture
"Stansbury’s Natalie is authentic as she navigates her teen years surrounded by chaos."
-Sally Dillon, Planet Vero
