The creators of the Broadway hit "Stomp" take the concept to another level with their new show, "Pandemonium: The Lost and Found Orchestra."

Going beyond the rhythms "Stomp" created using everyday objects, "Pandemonium" expands the idea by recreating musical instruments. The chaotic tones of glass bottles, whirly toys, musical saws and other objects recreate a complex symphonic and choral sound.

The idea came after "Stomp" creators Luke Cresswell and Steve McNicholas were approached by the United Kingdom's Brighton Festival to commission a new work for its 40th anniversary.

"Pandemonium" will begin a North American tour Sept. 16 in Miami. The show will make stops in Atlanta, Philadelphia, Hartford, Conn., Boston, Toronto and Chicago, among other cities.
