The director’s interpretation of the script commands the scenic design and the movement of the actors/dancers. Occasionally, there have been questions about how far a director should go in bringing her vision to opening night. A huge example is the musical Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark; the official opening of this Broadway musical was delayed several months due to scenic malfunctions (flying systems jamming, leaving an actor suspended in midair) and accidents (a stunt double for the lead role having his fly-wire snap, causing him to fall into the stage pit). The show did eventually open; however, the original director was replaced. Prior to that change in staffing, should the director have reconsidered her staging choices or was she correct in continuing her efforts to bring her vision of this production to an opening?
