"Classical Baby (I'm Grown Up Now): The Poetry Show" is a magical mix of some of the world's greatest poets - from William Shakespeare to Langston Hughes, Elizabeth Barrett Browning to Federico Garcia Lorca - and kids responding from the heart.
From the Emmy®- and Peabody Award-winning producers of previous "Classical Baby" specials, which introduced families to classical music, painting and dance, this all-new presentation consists of about a dozen short segments presenting favorites and surprises in an enchanting format. The diaper-clad maestro of previous "Classical Baby" specials is now a young boy who reads from famous poems in front of a rapt animal audience. Between each segment, children offer commentary and muse on the meaning and mystery of poetry.
Bringing a new world of the arts to life through animation and song, the special features the voices of performers Andy Garcia, John Lithgow, Elizabeth Mitchell, Gwyneth Paltrow, Susan Sarandon and Jeffrey Wright, and poets Langston Hughes, Gertrude Stein and William Carlos Williams.
