I have SP 90 (none DI), and it's very sharp. I have used it for portraits. The Auto focus is slow, and it takes a long time to cover from one end to the other, so you will miss some shots.
It also has a hard time focusing in less than optimal lighting ;-(

Never the less it's a fantastic lens.

Here is a sample; DS+Tamron90 @F/2.8 (posted previously)


I guess the lens to have for the stage shooting is Canon 135mm F/2 USM L ! But you need a Canon body for that. Here is a gallery of my wif's co-worker: http://www.pbase.com/eharel
