Over the years she has directed or choreographed more than thirty-five international productions, including the most recent Broadway revival of A Chorus Line in 2006, The King & I, Bombay Dreams, Rodgers and Hammerstein's Cinderella, Barnum, Porgy and Bess, Jesus Christ Superstar, and Carmen Jones.
