Get back in touch with your inner child at The Little Prince, a whimsical, high-flying stage adaptation of Antoine de Saint-Exupéry's beloved novella.

In The Little Prince play, an aviator has just crash-landed in a desert on Earth, far from human civilization. Out of the blue, a young boy — the titular Little Prince – appears and begins to tell the aviator all about his journey to various planets. We learn that the prince lived on a tiny planet, spending his days caring for his beloved rose flower, but soon wanted to discover what else the universe had to offer.

In his interplanetary travels, he encounters all kinds of adults who open the Prince’s eyes to what it means to be loved, to be lonely, and for life to be fleeting. But the Prince also discovers that many of these adults have lost their childlike sense of wonder. Luckily, the aviator isn’t one of them, and the two develop a bond in their eight days in the desert.

The Little Prince Broadway production is not a traditional play, as the story isn’t told with scene after scene of dialogue. It’s not exactly a musical, either, though music underscores the story. Rather, the company comprises gymnasts, acrobats, and dancers who, together with music and video projections, create a multimedia spectacle to thrill audiences of all ages. It’s somewhat like a Cirque du Soleil show and unlike anything else on Broadway right now.

What to Watch For

  • Fittingly for a show about faraway travel, The Little Prince has been performed all across the world, receiving acclaim for productions in Sydney, Paris, and Dubai before making a pit stop in New York.
  • The Little Prince Broadway show marks a homecoming of sorts; even though de Saint-Exupéry was French, he wrote and illustrated the book while living in New York. Manhattan’s Morgan Library has also displayed materials from The Little Prince multiple times including for the book’s 50th and 70th anniversaries.
  • The original The Little Prince novella is one of the bestselling and most translated books ever published, having sold more than 140 million copies in 301 languages and dialects.
  • de Saint-Exupéry likely based some of the characters on real people in his life. The prince is believed to be a composite of pilot Charles Lindbergh’s son; a smart young boy named Thomas De Koninck; and de Saint-Exupéry himself. The aviator is also partly based on de Saint-Exupéry, who was an aviator himself. The prince’s rose is likely based on the author’s wife, Consuelo, and the character of the fox is believed to be inspired by his friend Silvia Hamilton Reinhardt. She’s also said to have given de Saint-Exupéry the idea for one of the book’s most famous lines: “One sees clearly only with the heart.”
  • The watercolor illustrations in the book are almost as famous as its writing. The Little Prince does not incorporate de Saint-Exupéry’s drawings, but video projections are used to show the aviator's doodles, and the video backdrops are works of art themselves.
  • There are tons of adaptations of The Little Prince out there, including films, ballets, operas, plays, graphic novels, and even board games. One of the more recent stage adaptations (besides the current Broadway one) was a musical penned by Nicholas Lloyd Webber, son of Andrew Lloyd Webber. It premiered in Canada in 2016.
