For those of you that have access to an Android device (e.g., the new G1 phone):
Rehearsal Assistant is a software tool which helps performance artists conduct rehearsals by addressing media-related needs. Version 0.0.1 has been released for the Android platform, and allows choreographers, directors, lighting designers and others to take notes (record audio annotations) while watching a rehearsal run (or any other event), and review them later.
The recording interface allows the user to indicate the start of the rehearsal run (by pushing a "go" button) and then start / stop the recording of individual audio annotations (which will be time-stamped relative to the start of the rehearsal run). The playback interface displays the list of recorded annotation and allows them to be played back.

Or just download the released application on your device:
WARNING: this is an early development version. It uses a single project which will get overwritten every time you record annotations for a new rehearsal run. You are encouraged to try it out and provide feedback, but please use with care.
