Roth Mr. McWhirtrr and flyman Mr Larrabec say it's a good thing people, out front, don't know what pucs on j backstage. That would de- stroy the theatre's illusions. ''They pay people like me to out what might go wrong and find the iiest way of fixing il." savs Mr. Uirra- hec. There are pipes each (eel long, high up in the opera hiii.se ceiling. The scenery or lighting is attached to these pipes. Moving from scene to scene is done by attaching weights that, counierlialancc. the scenery and lighting at- tached lo the pipes.
