Recently got asked to be a Production Manager for a theatre company that I usually SM for. Have worked as a PSM previously for smaller companies and the only difference I encountered was the management of budgets. Anything else I need to look out for?

Thanks in advance,

There are a couple of threads on this topic- here's one and here's another. But ultimately, it varies from company to company so the best way to find out the job responsibilities are to ask the people offering the job.
