Description

Reflecting not only the author's theories and experience but the prior input of dozens of other stage managers, fight choreographers, pyrotechnicians, and directors, this text is a long-overdue introduction to the art of stage managing. It provides the guidelines and instructions needed by a beginning stage manager and provides 40 forms to help organize time and activities as well as a notation system to minimize difficulty with blocking and to make blocking notes more readable.
