i'm thinking of doing concert tour lighting design and i have a few questions. what is the pay like? what is being on the road like? are there unionization options, or benefits (i read in a semi-old book that this is not the case at all but i am hoping for an update if there is any)? how is the job in general (rough, fun, complicated, exciting, etc.)? what are qualities that are beneficial? what are the educational requirements? where can i gain experience? is it a hard feild to break into? for women in the feild: what is it like for a woman (is there sexism?, or it is a good feild for "theatre-gals"?)? would you reccomend this feild to interested young LDs? finally: give me any advice that seems pertinent. tell any stories that are entertaining or educational. Thank You.
