Warsaw pre-show - Crew go batty in Poland.

Warsaw pre-show - Crew go batty in Poland. Warsaw is not as grim as predicted and the vodka works its magic.

From Finland to Poland, as we travel to Warsaw. Several people warned us that it might be 'pretty grim', but actually Warsaw was on its best behaviour for us. Seeing the river and the lush green parks in the city, crew member Firmin Moriarty commented that he was surprised to find that Warsaw was in colour, because he'd always imagined it would be in black & white.

Tonight was one those rare things - a complete night off for the road crew with a late load-in tomorrow - so the old city of Warsaw became the scene of much carnage and merry making. Various members of the lighting crew in particular (it always seems to be the lighting crew for some reason) experienced way too many brands of local vodka and ended up hanging out of trees in the town square, pretending to be bats. Fortunately there were no arrests (for once).
