...why I posted the previous.
Because, simply, I know 'Evita' by heart.
I worked the 'first national tour', which hit Milwaukee...and I was placed on the IATSE crew for the load-in. And had the advantage of hanging with the out-of-town crew, along with several other local union guys.
In those days, I was considered 'one of the guys'. And I worked my A$$ off for that.
'Evita' came into Milwaukee with seven, yes 7, semis...in the early 80s, that was the largest show ever.
I still am proud to have been a part of that crew which raised the balcony of the 'Casa Rosada' on a RAKED stage, rubber mat-covered and full of holes, which actually hid the PAR-cans...or as you may know them, airport landing lights.
As I am now 65, and still totally FEMALE, I look back and loved my time when I was able to make other women be recognized as ABLE to work with union guys.
Because, right now, unions make me quite sick!
