Martin Aronstein (November 2, 1936 – April 3, 2002) was an American lighting designer whose Broadway career spanned thirty-six years.

Born in Pittsfield, Massachusetts, Aronstein attended Queens College in Flushing, New York. In 1957, following a performance sponsored by the New York Shakespeare Festival, he approached a backstage worker and asked if he could help break down the set. He apprenticed with the festival and worked there for five years before being named its principal lighting designer, a position he held until 1976. He also served as the resident lighting supervisor at Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts.

Aronstein made his Broadway debut as the lighting assistant for Arturo Ui in 1963. Additional Broadway credits include The Milk Train Doesn't Stop Here Anymore, Tiny Alice, The Impossible Years, Cactus Flower, The Royal Hunt of the Sun, How Now, Dow Jones, George M!, Promises, Promises, Play It Again, Sam, The Gingerbread Lady, Ain't Supposed to Die a Natural Death, The Incomparable Max, And Miss Reardon Drinks a Little, My Fat Friend, The Ritz, The Grand Tour, Noises Off, Benefactors, and The Twilight of the Golds.
