Disappointing

See it if The show was very disappointing. Too repetitive. Aerial stunts were good but too many and all the same. Too long and it got boring.

Romantic, Quirky, Fluffy, Dizzying, Confusing

See it if You like Cirques Soliel type shows. The modern dance numbers are good. It’s confusing so don’t over think it.

Don't see it if You are easily confused. If you are not into the acrobatic type displays. Reading from a prompter is required.

"If there are any limitations on the abilities of this joyful company of actors performing 'The Little Prince,' none are apparent as each and every actor on stage carries out his or her part with vigor and humor. They catch the whimsy of Saint-Exupéry's metaphorical tale of an Aviator (William Ketter, combining thoughtfulness and passion) whose airplane goes down in the African desert during WW II where he meets a strange blonde lad who eventually changes his way of looking at the world."

Theatre is Easy

“A joyful adaptation of ‘The Little Prince’...Expectations of how disability might or might not manifest in performance should be left at the door; this is as varied and individual a cast as any other...There are delightful performances...One of ‘The Little Prince’s’ surprising joys, though, came post-curtain call, when EPIC’s artistic director Therrien invited cast members to speak about their experiences performing with the company.”

"It is evident right off the bat that the standard these actors hold themselves to, independently and together as a team, is incredibly high. The story is taken seriously, but never to a degree of didacticism...No matter how pompous or petty some of these characters appear to be, they all feel palpable...Choosing to present characters rather than caricatures, the EPIC Players confidently add vivacity and verisimilitude to this already visceral story."
