US audiences were first to be introduced to Meital Dohan as Yael Hoffman on Showtime’s TV hit ‘Weeds,’ and as a guest star in ‘The Sopranos,’ and since then she’s added to her resume the TV series ‘Woke Up Dead,’ TV movie ‘Monogomay’ with co-stars Rashida Jones (‘Parks and Rec.’) and Chris Messina (‘Damages’)and more.
On stage, Meital recently co-starred as Abby with John Ventimiglia (The Sopranos) in the Off-Broadway and LA productions of Anthony Neilson’s play “Stitching,” which is now being developed into a feature film directed by Bernard Rose (Candy Man). Meital was described as “Extremely Gorgeous…” by the New York Times and “breathtaking” by Variety Magazine. Meital (pronounced “Mey-tål”) was born Meital Dohan in Tel Aviv.
Now the actress is turning pop singer, as she caught the attention of mega hip-hop producer Che Pope (Lauren Hill, Eminem, Dr. Dre) and they began to record her debut album “I’m In Hate With Love”, including such tracks as “Get to the Point” and “Nobody’s Got Time for Love”. Meital’s first release is the single “Yummy Boyz”. The track has been described as a “sexy, sassy electro-pop romp” along with the recently completed video that can best be described as… well, see for yourself.”
This week, Meital will be taking a step forward and will go on stage for the first time as a popstar. She’ll perform her debut single, ‘Yummy Boyz’ at the West Hollywood bar ‘Eleven.’ The performance is a special collaboration with Grindr, one of the biggest gay dating websites/apps, which is using Meital’s song as their theme song for a month. Doors for Fresh Fridays open at 10pm and they have a $5 cover.
