What I liked

Little to nothing

What I wish was different

I would have liked to, at the very least, be treated with respect


Don't do it. They are looking for students or young/less experienced people because they are easier to take advantage of. The pay is not worth the amount of hours of your life are truly imprisoned to this tour between traveling, loading in/out, and the actual shows, and the apparent perks do not make up for it. David is unsurprisingly a drama queen but considering how rude and unprofessional the rest of his team is it's truly beyond me how they continue to keep putting on this production. It's difficult to summarize how disheartening this experience was, but I feel like it would be a disservice not to at least warn my peers.
