Author: John McKinven
From religious plays to church celebrations to a host of theatrical forms -- opera, vaudeville, melodrama, pantomime and spectacle -- Stage Flying surveys the long history of simulated flight.
John A. McKinven received his B.A. degree in English from Ohio University. His reasearch into the history of stage flying spanned two decades. Long-time personal associations with contemporary designers of theatrical magic, automata and illusions have helped in the preparation of Stage Flying.
