The Company

Our History

 

Under the leadership of Founding Artistic Director Allison Arkell Stockman, and Managing Director A.J. Guban, Constellation has established itself as a vital, innovative company dedicated to staging dramatic spectacles with heightened style. Constellation brings big vision to its intimate 100-seat black box theatre, transforming the space for every production: a pirate ship; a mod Italian penthouse; a luminous Arabian palace.

 

Since  2007, Constellation has brought to life 42 diverse and vibrant stories from 16 countries. Constellation received the John Aniello Award for Outstanding Emerging Company from the Helen Hayes Awards in 2009 and the prestigious National Theatre Company Award from the American Theatre Wing in 2013. According to Metro Weekly magazine, Constellation “does some of the best, most adventurous, most reliable work in town, all presented on an epic scale with a level of intimacy that can’t be beat.”
