I would definitely lose the stage light if it was me. It confused me at first. I was thinking "Was this shot in an alley?" and "The light on her isn't coming from that light is it?" Then I figured it out. If there was some hint of people in the wings or something, it might work, but without telling any more of a "backstage story", I think it distracts too much.
At this angle, I think the image is more about her expression than anything else. That would cause me to be tempted to take it to a more traditional 8x10 crop and unfortunately lose the floor reflection. The alternative would be to leave it as is or maybe even go for a more extreme 9x16 crop (to emphasize the vertical) and then print it really big.
For a print, I would do everything I could to retain some tonal variation in the highlights and shadows of her skin.
