Update from VigoApril 22, 2009
Guest writer: Brian Walker, production manager
OK – we’ve survived the rehearsal in our first city, Vigo. It’s almost 8 am, and I’m sitting in the hotel lobby getting ready to travel to A Coruña to meet the other production team that started working yesterday. We loaded out of the theater last night until about 11:30 pm. In total, we worked 34 hours in 3 days to get the first show up on its feet. Needless to say, the crew are all a little worn out, and we still have five cities to go. Everyone is still in good spirits though and are still working hard. We brought five multipacks of 5 Hour Energy Shots to help keep the blood flowing. Today is going to be a long one. Only one day in A Coruña and then heading to Santander tomorrow morning. It will be another late night tonight and early morning tomorrow.
Our tour catch-phrase is quickly becoming “One Night Only”.
