Doug Henning

Doug Henning, the ebullient, shaggy-headed magician who sparked a renewed interest in the craft and breathed new life into some of history’s most famous illusions. With a curly mane of hair and a near-constant grin, Mr. Henning was one of the most famous illusionists in the world during the 1970’s and early 80’s, appearing in three Broadway shows and a dozen television specials. In each case, he stunned audiences with a seemingly impossible array of disappearing assistants and levitating ladies. Doves became rabbits in Mr. Henning’s hands, and horses took wing. One of his most impressive acts was ”Metamorphosis,” an illusion borrowed from Harry Houdini, his idol.
