He is accompanied by “Solitary Science” a celebrated multi-instrumentalist, composer, and electronic musician.  

Along the way, the exuberant storyteller transports the audience to the turn of the 20th century in an Upper Eastside, New York City apartment, where an extraordinary magic show occurred in 1895.
