The Little prince on stage

"The Little Prince" (Lookingglass Theatre):  Fantasy Turned Spectacle

The novella Le Petit Prince was first published in 1943.  Since it’s genesis, the children’s book has been translated into over 250 languages and dialects.  The classic tale is about a lost aviator meeting a young prince from another world.  The prince charms the aviator with his intergalactic adventures.  His stories muse traditional adult issues as universal absurdities.  Lookingglass Theatre turns Antoine de Saint-Exupery’s fantasy into a full-blown spectacle.
