Does John Gaughan make them for the musical stage? I saw Tommy and they had ol' Tommy flying and it looks fantastic, just as good and natural as DC's.

The Mary Poppins style rigs, where you can "see the work" are FOY rigs... no invisibility. What Gaughan has done has made it MAGIC.

He may have a website, I don't know. Maybe you could go to

I had 10th row center seats, you could not see the rigging at all and no stress on clothing etc.. I've seen the Peter Pan type riggins and the production of Tommy I saw did not use reg. rigging.
