  • Summary
  • Theater

Antoine de Saint-Exupéry's novel The Little Prince comes to life under the direction of Lookingglass ensemble member and Northwestern University faculty member David Catlin.  While rushing to get somewhere, an aviator crashes in the Sahara desert.  Alone, stuck and thirsty, he meets a strange and wonderful little prince.  In a world moving so fast that an entire month may be lived within a single day, this classic all-ages tale of imagination, whimsy and unrequited love for a single rose shows us how to look beyond the tangible world to see what is truly essential.

Presented in association with The Actors Gymnasium .
