* The TurnOfTheMillennium revival of StephenSondheim's ''Theatre/SweeneyToddTheDemonBarberOfFleetStreet'' (produced first in the U.K., then on Broadway) sets the whole thing in an insane asylum, drops the ensemble, and the remaining performers -- the leads and supporting cast -- play instruments when they aren't singing.
* Over the years, StephenSondheim's ''Theatre/{{Company}}'' has undergone a transformation as to the concept behind the concept musical: in the original production, there was more of a focus on the show being a series of vignettes about married life, but later productions (particularly the 2006 Broadway Revival) interpret the text as a narrative about Bobby's isolation and inability to connect with people as his friends do.
* The Fiasco Theatre production of StephenSondheim's ([[RuleOfThree noticing a trend?]]) ''Theatre/IntoTheWoods'', which depicts the story as told by a bunch of people using whatever they have, playing multiple roles.

The German term is "Regietheater" (literally "direction theatre") and the trope forms an important part of German theatre culture.

* The 2015 Deaf West Broadway Revival of ''SpringAwakening'', which cast several deaf performers in the roles, making their characters deaf as a result. The deaf performers would sign while hearing actors (who also made up the band) voiced their dialogue and singing. The change really heightened the themes of miscommunication and alienation and changed some of the shows relationships. The biggest change is the show incorporating the policies for the deaf enacted in education at the time, such as forbidding sign language and forcing the students to speak. As a result, [[spoiler: Moritz being intentionally flunked out of school is significantly harsher than the original as it seems like the teachers want to keep a deaf student out of the school and, in turn, their adoration of Melchior is because he can hear.]]
