The Complexity of Stage Directions Folks have no idea how complicated it is to remember during blocking...."Down where?" I even tell my family during shows that the best view of the stage is Upper Stage Left, only to have them misunderstand and end up in the very back of the theater on the opposite side. Sigh.

Learning waltz turn and a variation. How not to be confused!

Lol no, it's because theatres used to have several different acts back stage waiting to go on if something went wrong. They didn't have enough money to pay every act, so you were only paid if you performed. The term "break a leg" was used to wish people to go on (breaking the leg of the stage by entering) & get paid. It eventually became used to wish someone good luck.
