After a critically acclaimed run at the Edinburgh Fringe, 'Flight' made its NYC debut at FringeNYC. Set amidst the chaos of World War II, 'The Little Prince' is a timeless story about learning to see with the heart, and finding the courage to fly. These themes inspired physical theater company Curbside to create 'Flight,' a sequel with an acrobatic twist. Six years after the original, the Pilot has forgotten the Little Prince’s secret, so he embarks on a quest to find his lost friend and remember the secret. However, nothing is as he remembers: planets are islands, the rose is a cactus, and the Little Prince is a tiny girl who proclaims that girls can be princes, too.
