Floor mics don't have to be used on the floor. The can be on top of railings, on tables, in planters, on vertical posts near head height, and on the bottom of set ceilings (like the 'inner below'). Like everyone else said, get the actors blocked around the mics, and make sure that each actor's mouth has a clear line of sight to the mic (one actor talking into the back of another actor's head will not work).

The Crown PCC-160 was designed by Bruce Bartlett. He now has his own company and manufactures the next generation of the design. Info can be found at https://www.bartlettaudio.com/collections/stage-floor-mics.

I've used PCCs in countless musicals for kids choirs in Joseph, to tap dancing in No No Nannette. Also in board rooms on tables. They've always been better than you could imagine or anticipate.
