Unseen Magic Show Publicity Photo: Part 2

Like I mentioned last Saturday, all this week I’m going to be featuring “Magic Show” photos from 1976 taken by photographer Martha Swope. These will show you alternative takes of familiar scenes, and illusions covered in previous 1974 photos. 

There is definitely a fun and a spark to these photos that give you a hint of the energy Doug still projected to audiences two years into the run. What’s your favorite memory of seeing the show?
