From a childhood book to a stage near you: ‘The Little Prince’ hits Broadway
If you remember a book from your childhood called “The Little Prince,” it has been turned into a Broadway show.
The dream world of “The Little Prince” comes to life on a Broadway stage. The classic children's book of the same name has been adapted into a performance with aerialists, acrobats and dancers.
Just like the story itself of a child who travels to planets throughout the universe and his adventures with the people he meets, the production has crisscrossed the globe, beginning in Paris with director and choreographer, Anne Tournie.
“The Little Prince” was written in New York back in 1942 by French author, Antoine de Saint-Exupery, then living in New York, whose great nephew says the family is proud of how the story has impacted generations.
“The Little Prince” is scheduled to take audiences along on the journey on Broadway through Aug 14.
The show is being performed at the Broadway Theatre as a limited engagement.
