See Pete Biro's Jan. 24/05 post on page 1, Rennie. Smile

This is an old post that hopefully we can keep alive...I remember the first time I saw Henning was in 1980 or 1981, I can't remember off the top of my head. It was at the Auditorium Theatre in Chicago. My dad got great seats! We were 11 or 12 rows on the main floor. I remember sitting directly behind a very lovely young woman. As the audience was filing in she would occasionally glance around and I overheard her saying "Look at all of these people!" It ended up that I was sitting behind Debby Douillard, soon to be Debby Henning. I guess my seats were better than I had originally thought!

I agree!

I started 3 or 4 posts about nominating Doug but no one ever really responded!

There's so much unexplored info about Doug - hopefully we can keep this thread alive. Anyone have any news or magazine articles scanned? An email trade or network could be interesting.

Jim Steinmeyer's a pretty sharp guy. With the history he and Doug have, I'm sure he's working on it.

J. P. Laramee and I attended The Magic Show several times in 1976-76, catching the matinée after spending some time in Tannen's.

There were no sand tricks in the show. Yes the pretty assistant who spent half the show divided (thin model sawing) turned into a mountain lion during the end of the show... remember Dale Soul's singing about how she wants to be a loin tamer cause she got along with cats?



A "loin tamer?" I used to date a girl like that. Smile

Perhaps this is a more appropriate forum for this post.
I think even the most glowing of the tributes here fail to do Doug Henning justice. For some decades before his Broadway appearance in The Magic Show, the magician was a novelty act, often a well paid one who worked the very finest venues. I'm talking about Cardini, Jay Marshall, Channing Pollack, etc. They were great performers but not true stars in the public's mind. Henning changed the atmosphere and attitude of show business, paving the way for Copperfield, Sigfried and Roy, Burton and many other who now have entire shows built around them.

Don't forget that Mark Wilson paved the way for Doug Henning.

Some former Henning fans still hold his rather abrupt dismissal of his crew and management against him.

What's the story behind this Bill?
I worked with Glenn Priest for about 10 months in 1986, but despite my repeated efforts over beers I could never get any stories out of him regarding how it all ended.

Doug was definitely a HUGE influence on me.
Without a doubt one of my favorites.
