"Children will laugh, cry and be frightened. And they'll love it!" — The Village Voice
From Asteroid B-612... into our hearts. Based on the story by Antoine deSaint-Exupery, this magical musical fable begins as a pilot (Richard Kiley) makes a forced landing on the barren Sahara Desert. He is befriended by a wandering child from a faraway place. Together, the two share encounters that amuse, charm and touch the heart. Have you ever acquired wisdom from a fox (Gene Wilder, clad all in orange)? Cared for a rose that was special beyond all other roses? Visited a far-off king? Witnessed the wily dance of a snake (Bob Fosse)?
Directed by Stanley Donen (Singin’ in the Rain), this spectacular Technicolor musical is an enchanting delight for grown-ups and children alike.
