Ambitious, Clever, Entertaining, A gymnastic realization of the little prince

See it if you want to be transported be 3 actors who literally transport themselves

Don't see it if you're not adventurous and need your stories acted and not brought to life

Delightful, Entertaining, Funny, Intelligent, Refreshing

See it if physicality between acrobatics and dance appeals to you do not miss this. Willingness to suspend disbelief required. Good for all ages.

Don't see it if you hated The Little Prince, if you need concrete action & characters.

Entertaining, Great staging, Absorbing, Clever, Delightful

See it if You're a fan of The Little Prince, acrobatics, storytelling. You want to watch three incredibly talented performers.

Don't see it if You prefer big sets/costumes. You'd be upset that parts of the retelling of The Little Prince get "tweaked" from the original.

Absorbing, Delightful, Enchanting, Original, Refreshing

See it if You are a Little Prince fan & want to see different ways to interpret the story, don't mind short plays and to see acrobatics w. a story

Don't see it if You can't stand any changes to the Little Prince storyline, hate hearing kids laugh in the audience or ask questions, or want a flashy show.

Entertaining, Great staging, Must see, Masterful, Unique

See it if storytelling combined with acrobatic modern dance. Three actors form amazing animals/objects while they relate the fable. Awestruck

Don't see it if You expect a traditional play. Dislike performance pieces. Do not have an imagination. Dislike Cirque de Soleil.

Enchanting, Delightful, Great staging

See it if you enjoy utterly charming short plays with scenery/costumes/most props acrobatically formed by a small cast, and The Little Prince.

Don't see it if you only like big shows with alot happening on stage. Also, if you are too tired to use your imagination. Or dislike children.

The New York Times
August 19th, 2016

"FringeNYC does not do classics without a spin, so Ezra LeBank’s 'Flight' is a sequel to, rather than an adaptation of, 'The Little Prince.' This family-friendly display of whimsical physical theater imagines a girl Prince who wanders from island to island for no good reason, and the show makes ingenious use of three actors’ bodies."

Theatre is Easy
August 18th, 2016

"Stunning acrobatics carry us seamlessly through the story. Effortlessly transitioning through flips, suspensions, and human towers, the company evokes 'Flight’s' sea, sky, and desert landscapes and the plants, animals, vehicles, and people within them...A little more time spent with particular characters might strengthen its overall effects. Nonetheless, Curbside takes us on a delightful journey, inviting us to briefly abandon preconceptions, see with our hearts, and join them in 'Flight.'"

Stage Buddy
September 29th, 2016

"Children and adults alike will delight in the charming acrobatic adventure...'Flight' takes the unique imagery from the beloved French story and turns it into a beautiful 50-minute movement piece full of intertwined bodies, mime and vocal sound effects...Fans of 'The Little Prince' as well as those who have never read the book will still be entertained by the symbiosis between the three performers."

New York Theater

"The story is amusing and fanciful. But I personally could have appreciated 'Flight' just as much had it been performed in silence. That way I could have avoided what seemed at times the distraction of the narration and concentrated on the dancing — or, to be more specific, on the sublime creations that come to life through nothing more than physical movement full of gracefulness and invention."

Nitelife Exchange
August 26th, 2016

"Brilliantly and lovingly created…As the three performers float, fly, balance, and billow, they twist and turn and turn into the many characters with their bodies and voices, deftly directed with discretion by Olivia Trevino. The affection for the key parts and details of the story and its sensibilities is remarkable and delightful. Like the original tale and the original prince, 'Flight' is pure of heart and pure enchantment."

Best New York Comedy
August 15th, 2016

“An endlessly inventive three-person acrobatic musical/dance fable springboarding off classic children’s book ‘The Little Prince.’ Written by Ezra LeBank, choreographed & directed by Olivia Treviño, and starring Ezra LeBank, Taylor Casas, and Cynthia Price, the show is magic, with a heart as big as the ocean and perspectives that might stay with you for a lifetime...Has my highest recommendation.”

Primary Times

For a previous production

"'Flight' took us on a whimsical journey from the innocence of childhood to the wonder of the world as seen through the eyes of an adult…Thanks to simple staging, our attention was held throughout by the narrator's distinct voice combined with the athletic poses created by the energetic trio of physical performers...'Flight' draws us into a magical hour where young and old alike can stretch their imaginations."

The Absent Reviewer
August 15th, 2015
For a previous production

"A visually stimulating and ethereal show...'Flight' is a combination of contact acrobatics and storytelling…There is a truly playful ingenuity in how these two forms meet on stage; reactionary and never gratuitous, the two complement each other perfectly…The script is delightful…LeBank’s writing gets under your skin and makes you smile...'Flight' is a clever and heartfelt adventure, performed brilliantly by a dedicated cast."
