With 15 years of nationwide experience backstage, and a further 18 in theatre consulting, Alec Stoll is internationally respected as a theatre planner and designer. Alec has played integral roles in well over 100 academic, professional and community venues as well as historic renovation and restoration projects.
Alec’s current projects with Stages Consultants include the addition and renovation for the Creative Arts Center at Wright State University in Dayton, OH, the Centre for Arts and Communications at Grant MacEwan University in Edmonton AB, and the expansion of the Maltz Jupiter Theatre in Jupiter, FL. Alec is also designing a new 350-seat cabaret theatre and an 800-seat arts center for The Faena Group as well as the renovation of a performance space for 1,000 at the Castle Club, all in Miami Beach, FL.
Prior to founding Stages Consultants with Damian Doria, Alec served for 10 years as a senior project manager and designer for Fisher Dachs Associates. Alec led their efforts on the new Mariinsky Opera House in St. Petersburg, Russia, the Lotte Tower Concert Hall in Seoul, Korea, and many other theatre projects in the US and abroad.
Alec is capable of balancing the competing priorities of program needs, theatrical, architecture and acoustical goals, and cost. I value Alec’s willingness to explain the benefits and relative value of various theatrical features and his ability to work collaboratively with the project team and staff to make well-informed and wise decisions.
