The Little Prince is one of my all time, favorite stories. And Irina Kompa's retelling of it in the span of 45 minutes totally works. She hits the highlights and main themes, but at the same time adds some new and interesting theatrical elements that keep this telling of the story fresh.... full review

Creative! Very imaginative telling of this wonderful story. Very stylized use of lighting, movement and environment. Seemingly simple, yet deep and personal.... full review

It was a great way to adapt the original story. I liked the way the three actors portrayed the different characters. Each character was so different I forgot they were the same actors playing each part. I had a great time.... full review

The Little Prince is one of my favorite books. I found this unique staged adaptation to be thoughtfully on point, charming, well-directed and so timely - with the state of our country now creativity, hope and dreams have never been more important. ... full review

I am woefully late in writing this review... "The Journey of the Little Prince" was a perfect show for this Fringe... or any Fringe! I'd forgotten most of the original story and this production did a wonderful job of hitting me from a completely different angle than the story did when I was a kid... because that's what it's about: being a kid. Or rather, STAYING a kid and not letting becoming an adult stunt your growth. Sweet performances, a very unique design element, and a wonderful message that can't be heard too often.... full review

This is the hardest review I've ever written for Fringe because I'm only twenty-five and I think I'm the exact sort of cynical adult that the Little Prince would rightly deride. I tried hard to engage with the production, I really did, but I was not able to give into the sense of childlike wonder that this piece encourages. And that's... sad to me.... full review

a dreamlike, mesmerizing, atmospheric, and inventive take on a classic story. Despite the central premise of adults losing their sense of child-like wonderment, the actors never let this get too heavy, bringing so much fun and life to a heavy concept. ... full review
IAN KAYE certified reviewer June 18, 2019
A thoughtful adaptation of a classic children's book that touches on love and individuality that is relayed with an almost child like simplicity which exists at the heart of the original little prince. I sometimes felt like I could've been watching a kids bedtime story craftily being performed in their bedroom with the use of flashlight puppetry, and I mean that in the best way. Irina's intention seemed to be deliberate in allowing us to tap back into that little kid psyche. The script was written in a way that these very complex ideas were broken down into base theme & emotion, making sure to focus our attention on what is truly important. Love, true friendship, loyalty etc. and less on the ego driven accomplishments which most adults fixa... full review
