Thurston's Floating Ball by Herman Hanson - Book
The greatest of all Floating Ball routines, developed and used by Howard Thurston during his long and illustrious career. A magnificent display of super showmanship for the stage.
Effect: Audience sees a cabinet with the doors wide open. The ball materializes before their eyes and floats out of the cabinet over to the performer. Following commands of the performer, the ball floats at various levels and speeds all over the stage - a spectacular display.Then performer, with ball suspended between his hands, steps off the stage, so he is among the spectators. After walking about, he stands facing the stage, and the ball travels back, by itself—over the footlights and on to the stage. It floats high above the cabinet and remains there suspended until the performer returns to it. For a dramatic finale, the ball hovers over his head and then slowly glides into the cabinet and vanishes!
