OVERVIEW

From London’s prestigious National Theatre – the unparallelled theatrical institution that brought you such Broadway favorites as The History Boys and One Man, Two Guvnors – comes War Horse, the 2011 Tony Award winner for Best Play that never fails to dazzle audiences with its truly one-of-a-kind spellbinding spectacle.

War Horse follows the breathtaking adventure of Joey – a completely handmade puppet that comes to awe-inspiring life right before your very eyes – as he travels from the homely English countryside of his birth to the fields of France and Germany at the outbreak of World War I. A magnificent drama filled with stirring music, beautiful songs, indescribable grandeur and sheer inventiveness, War Horse combines unbelievable puppetry with a heartfelt story about a boy’s undying commitment to his beloved childhood horse, a truly triumphant tribute to the power of spiritual perseverance.


Four out of four stars! A life-affirming experience!
