Peter Foy

Peter Foy, whose company Flying By Foy has sent stage Peter Pans from Mary Martin to Cathy Rigby soaring toward the rafters, died Feb. 17, 2005, in Las Vegas, Nevada, of natural causes. He was 79. Mr. Foy, who was born in England, first sailed to New York to stage the flying sequences of the 1950 Broadway production of the musical Peter Pan, which starred Jean Arthur as the magical boy who refuses to grow up. Little did the young technician and sometime actor know at the time that the musical would become a perennial favorite and his most famous and steady client over the next half century.
