yes, we did play huge venues but many of the stops were one-nighters in dingy dumpy Motel 7 types. The kids did the majority of their schoolwork on the bus because we were travelling so much, sometimes 8+ hours on the bus between cities. A few plane trips, but majority was bus and only occasionally lucky enough to stay a full week at one place. The pay was so poor that many roomed 4 to a room, to cut costs. And yes, they do advertise it as 'Broadway' with the same high ticket prices which is a bit misleading to the public.
