Quirky author and composer Michael Hearst, along with his band, presents songs about Unusual Creatures, Extraordinary People, and Curious Constructions geared towards curious families, extraordinary children and their unusual friends.

The show draws from Michael Hearst's series of books, albums and PBS series. It is an A/V presentation of some of the most bizarre animals that roam the planet, odd and daring characters, and buildings sometimes stranger than the BrooklynBridge - using such odd-ball instruments as theremin, claviola, and stylophone.
