Hey everyone, while we are having a slow few months on the tour, I have taken a job as TD for a local professional theaters production of Phantom of the Opera (not the Loyd-Webber version ). Here is my question / concern: The stage director / choreographer (who is also the Artistic Director) has made it know that he intends to direct all future company shows AS WELL AS stage manage them... . I am wondering how this arrangement would work? I tried to talk him out of it, but he is set in his ways. Is this going to pose any major problems during the rehearsals, etc or should I just continue as if nothing is out of the ordinary? Have there been any past cases of director / stage manager combo's? I searched around some forums and the web, and found no mention of this practice. Thanks!
