Pros: amazing experience! great pay!
In the early days of the project, very fast paced! Long hours, large projects. Very rewarding time!! The later years, after the show was up and running, became routine. My days became predictable. I enjoyed the fast paced portion much more.
I learned that a team is much more than just talented people. The Lighting Director chose people not only for their talent, but their ability to be part of a team.
I learned more from this one manager than I have from all others combined. Highest respect for her!!
The team I was a part of, came from very diverse backgrounds, not all were as experienced, but each was committed to what we were doing. An excellent blend of talent and experience! We all knew we were involved with a revolutionary show and loved it!
Looking back, I have nothing but positive memories.
The most enjoyable part is knowing that after 17 years, the show is still amazing!
