The Little Prince Pushes Back Broadway Dates

The Little Prince is headed to Broadway and audiences will just have to wait a few weeks longer to experience the spectacle. The show will now begin Broadway previews on Tuesday, March 29, with opening night set for Monday, April 11 at the Broadway Theatre. The production was previously scheduled to begin performances on March 4 and open March 17.

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; assistant choreography by Noellie Bordelet; 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 international company includes Lionel Zalachas (The Little Prince), Aurélien Bednarek (The Aviator), Chris Mouron (The Narrator), Laurisse Sulty (The Rose / The Snake alternate), Adrien Picaut (The Businessman / The Switchman), Antony Cesar (The Vain Man), Andre Kamienski (The Drunkard), Marcin Janiak (The Lamplighter), Srilata Ray (The Snake), Dylan Barone (The Fox / The King), Marie Menuge (Ensemble, The Rose / The Drunkard alternate), Joän Bertrand (Ensemble, The Fox / The King alternate), George Sanders (Ensemble), and William John Banks (Ensemble).
