Homework Help / Deadline February 1, 2011: Stage Mangement

Project due date: February 1, 2011

For my honor's project I am going to read a book that would be beneficial for a stage manager to read.  Other books we are reading include The 360 Degree Leader, Blink, Nudge, and The Backstage Guide to Stage Management.

I am looking for book suggestions to read that relate to the field.

So I am very new to the field of stage management (i only recently switched my major and was given a title of SM).  My first full-length stage management job is for a show in our thrust space. 

Since, I am in an academic setting my assistant stage manager is chosen for me and assigned the task.  However, I am somewhat worried because the ASM that I was assigned was the stage manager for my director this past semester.  There have been occasions (mostly noted from colleagues) that it was brought to my attention that this could produce some sort of a problem.  I was wondering if this is even a case for worry? 

I have talked to my professor about it, but I would very much like to hear what some of your ideas are.  Is it necessary for me to say anything to my ASM?  Or is there anything I should do to prepare in case it becomes an issue?
