The Little Prince has been extended twice by popular demand, but must close March 16, 2014. Don't miss the chance to experience the story based on the classic French novella highly recommended by the Chicago Sun-Times.
**Written for adults, but fine for savvy 6+/95 minutes--no intermission, soooooo leave the littlest littles at home for this one. There's nothing scary or wildly inappropriate for all ages, but make sure your child is mature enough to sit for an hour and a half without a break when considering this show.**
Based on the book by Antoine de Saint-Exupery
Directed by Ensemble Member David Catlin
The Little Prince was a shoe in for ChiIL Mama's ChiIL Picks List for Best Family Friendly Theatre Productions. We adore circus arts, particularly when they advance and enhance a plot. We also love book based theatrical adaptations. Lookingglass Theatre consistently impresses and we've long been fans of David Catlin's work on stage and pulling the strings as director. So, to say we had high expectations for The Little Prince would be an understatement. I'm thrilled to say we were more than impressed. This production gets it right.
The content and depth is there, but the playful overtones, and visually stunning costumes, sets, and props keep the production from being heavy handed and make it amusing and entertaining. This is one of our current favorites for creative set design as well as stellar acting, creative use of aerial and circus arts. Click here for our prior coverage.
The Little Prince must close March 16, 2014!
