THE LITTLE PRINCE

December 5, 2013 - March 16, 2014

Directed by Ensemble Member David Catlin
By Rick Cummins and John Scoullar
Based on the book by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry 

“One sees clearly only with the heart. What is essential is invisible to the eye.” – The Little Prince

Stuck, thirsty and alone. A pilot stranded in the Sahara Desert meets an enigmatic, charismatic young prince fallen from the sky who regales him with tales of life among the stars: tales with earthly importance.

In this visually arresting, fully immersive theatrical interpretation of the beloved French novella, director David Catlin (creator of Lookingglass Alice) illustrates the story with fantastic characters and gravity-defying, awe-inspiring physical feats. The Little Prince speaks—in breathtaking splendor—to the castaway in all of us: challenging our perspective, opening our eyes and bringing us back to the heart of what truly matters.
