The Little Prince
February 18-19 @ Segerstrom Center for the Arts
This is an astonishing new take on the classic story, often assumed to be for children. The Little Prince is actually a tale for all ages about understanding how to laugh, love and cry again. A beautiful new production uses inventive puppets, live actors, original music and magnificent design to bring to life the heart-warming story of the Little Prince who gains rare and unique insights into love, loss, and laughter. This is a multi-layered visual feast to awaken the child tucked away inside us all.
A Piece of My Heart
February 3-26 @ Costa Mesa Playhouse
Inspired by the book of the same name, an oral history of women who served in Vietnam, this is the true story of six of those women - four nurses, a Red Cross worker and a country western singer - spanning 20 years, from young idealists unprepared for the horrors of war, through their lifelong struggles to come to term with their experiences. Named "The most enduring play on Vietnam in the nation" by The Vietnam Vets Association.
