The Little Prince: Reimagined

A crashed pilot. A mysterious boy. A timeless adventure.

Antoine de Saint-Exupéry’s beloved masterpiece The Little Prince tells the story of a nameless pilot whose plane crashes in the desert, where he has a life-changing encounter with a mysterious boy who claims to be the Prince of his own small planet. As the pilot learns the Prince’s story, he overcomes his suspicions and rediscovers his long-lost sense of wonder and imagination.

Puzzle Piece’s reimagining of the classic story features a gorgeous new staging and puppetry concept, and a modernized English text by Puzzle Piece Artistic Director Richard Lam. Come and experience the magic of The Little Prince like you’ve never seen it before.

Praise for The Little Prince: Reimagined

"Puzzle Piece’s magical take on Antoine de Saint-Exupéry’s classic never panders to young audience members...it takes immense skill to create and sustain this charming world."

-Debbie Fein-Goldbach, NOW Magazine

_

“"...the whole production is infused with a childlike sense of imagination and creativity...as the story says, “taming” is a stand-in for “loving” something and it’s clear this production is Lam’s “taming” of The Little Prince."

-Carly Maga, Toronto Star

_

“Jon Lachlan Stewart’s direction with Richard Lam’s writing has pulled everything together into a play that is fresh and modern but stays true to its roots...It is a great family show and those aren’t always easy to find.”

-Sam Mooney, Mooney On Theatre

“It’s terrific…The director, Jon Lachlan Stewart directs with a wonderful imagination that can create such magical stuff that goes with this whimsical, serious comedy.”

-Lynne Slotkin, The Slotkin Letter
