An interesting discussion of how the steps are recorded, and passed on.

Russell says, around four minutes into the clip, that
[size=4]A stager is someone who should have all the information, [/size]including[size=4] the choreographer's intentions, 'cause just the steps without the intentions of the choreographer is - rather meaningless, and then also be able to oversee the lighting, the costumes, the orchestra, be responsible for every aspect of the production.
[size=4]Some stagings are undercut, in my opinion, by "contemporary" (i.e., dim) lighting, for example, or other inauthentic or inappropriate alterations. [/size]Brava[size=4] to Francia Russell for taking this comprehensive view of her responsibility.[/size]
The item has a nice little slide show, too.
Thank you for the post, Jayne.
