Travel-Fly Rig Modified

Paul Carter


After reading Don Holder’s “A Simultaneous Travel-Fly Rig,” Paul Carter wrote the editors, “We just hung a show, Brigadoon, here at the [New York] State Theatre that used a similar (travel-fly) system … and avoided all the rope on the stage floor and rigging to the arbor.

As the traveler moves up and down with the pipe, the system works much like [the original]. In addition, this system works when the fly rail is not at stage level.”

The modified system is illustrated in Figure 1.
