Sydney Morning Herald
On the heels of an acclaimed return engagement which concluded last week in Sydney, Australia, Broadway Entertainment Group has announced that The Little Prince will now begin Broadway previews on Tuesday, March 29, with opening night set for Monday, April 11 at the Broadway Theatre (1681 Broadway). The production was previously scheduled to begin performances on March 4 and open March 17.
The critics in Sydney said:
“The Little Prince brings joy and wonderment. It’s sublime to watch.” (BroadwayWorld)
“The Little Prince truly is a masterpiece and ‘must-see.’” (Dance Life Australia)
“Anne Tournié has created an immersive experience of wonder and dazzling visuals.” (Sydney Arts Guide)
“A story that constantly looks to the stars. It really does feel like a spell: the movement and swelling, wistful score weave together an invocation of our better selves – the parts of us that can be moved to tears by the grace of a dancer reaching out her hand; the parts that find beauty and purpose in connecting with others; that part of us that wants to better the world within which we live and work and love.” (The Guardian)
Following sold-out runs in Paris, Sydney, and Dubai, The Little Prince, one of the best-selling and most translated books ever published, will come home to New York in a new stage production filled with theatrical spectacle, dance, aerial acrobatics, and ground-breaking video mapping technology that bring the classic adventure story loved by generations to life.
Arriving in New York City on the cusp of World War II, the exiled French author and aviator Antoine de Saint-Exupéry wrote and illustrated The Little Prince in 1942 while residing between a Manhattan townhouse and the historic Delamater-Bevin Mansion on the north shore of Long Island. The now-classic was first published in the United States in 1943.
The award-winning creative team for The Little Prince is led by director and choreographer Anne Tournié, with libretto adaptation and co-direction by Chris Mouron; original music by Terry Truck; video design by Marie Jumelin; costume design by Peggy Housset; lighting design by Stéphane Fritsch; sound design by Tristan Viscogliosi; video projection by Etienne Beaussart; hair and makeup by Carmen Arbues Miro; and props by Aurélie Gandilhon.
The show’s company of international performers includes Lionel Zalachas (The Little Prince), Aurélien Bednarek (The Aviator), Chris Mouron (The Narrator), Laurisse Sulty (The Rose), Adrien Picaut (The Businessman / The Switchman), Antony Cesar (The Vain Man), Marcin Janiak (The Lamplighter), Srilata Ray (The Snake), Dylan Barone (The Fox), Marie Menuge (The Drunkard), Joän Bertrand (The King), George Sanders (Ensemble), William John Banks (Ensemble), and Christian Denice (Ensemble). Madison Ward and Jayesh Palande are acrobatic swings.
The Little Prince is presented on Broadway by Special Arrangement with Rick Cummins and the Estate of John Scoullar.
Generations around the world love The Little Prince. The international book phenomenon has sold a stunning 200 million copies, becoming the second most translated book in modern history in 250 languages. Now The Little Prince comes to life in a magical first-class theatre spectacular live on stage. Experience a constellation of compelling characters and colorful costumes. Leap into a vivid universe of dance, music, projections, and acrobatics.
