Allison Considine is the senior editor of American Theatre magazine. Her writing has appeared in Backstage, Broadway Style Guide, and TDF Stages. She contributed to the book American Theatre Wing, An Oral History: 100 Years, 100 Voices, 100 Million Miracles — a 100-year history on the celebrated organization behind the Tony Awards.
It was a community theater production of Winnie the Pooh at age three that sparked Allison’s interest in theater. She went on to study acting at Pace University in New York City, and completed a training intensive with the National Youth Theatre of Great Britain. Some of her favorite onstage credits include playing Louise in a production of Gypsy alongside Austin Pendleton, and performing at London’s Hackney Empire with the National Youth Theatre.
After college, Allison took a sidestep from acting and turned her attention to arts journalism, which allows her to explore the creative process behind the stage magic. She enjoys connecting with emerging theater professionals and educators about theater training — and, of course, seeing it all come together onstage. Some of her favorite Broadway shows in recent years include SIX, Matilda the Musical, Dear Evan Hansen, and Tina: The Tina Turner Musical.
