Stage Directions in Shakespeare

My question for you is whether or not stage directions are a sufficient replacement for actually seeing a drama acted out in front of you, or if a reader will always miss out onsome aspect of a play for not watching it?

Why are there not as many stage directions [in Shakespeare] as there seem to be in many plays?
