Is it just me, or are there fewer choreographers in a week than there used to be?
I remember way back when, there would be a lot of numbers from different choreographers, and then there would be one choreographer (or team) that did two routines, and for the choreographer who did two routines in a week, often one would seem distinctly weaker than the other.
Now we have what, Mandy Moore and Travis doing numbers for the show AND doing the group numbers. This week seemed awfully contemporary-heavy to me.
Now we're at the point where they call out the names of some people who used to make me say "oh boy, another number from (name)" and now I groan and say "oh, no, not another number from (name)". To me that's a sign they don't have enough choreographers on tap.
The stupid theatrical lighting that makes the dancers invisible can go away, too.
