The production was spectacular, filled with soulful folk music, superb acting and life sized horse puppets that whinnied and neighed and twitched their tails and ears. And while the horse puppets were amazing, it was the cheeky goose puppet who got the biggest round of applause at the end.I was mesmerized for the entire 2 hours and 45 minutes.
If you're looking for something different than the typical musical, go see War Horse. You'll leave feeling like it was money well spent.
Even though it is based on a novel for young people, this show is not appropriate for children under 12.
Venue: New London Theatre
Pre-Theatre Dinner: Strada on Great Queen Street. Reasonably priced, tasty Italian food just a 3 minute walk from the theatre.
Don't live near London? You can also see it in New York at Lincoln Center. The US tour is set to open in Los Angeles in June and then move on to 19 other cities. Even the Aussies won't be left out when War Horse opens in Melbourne this summer. A full UK tour is set to begin next year. Go see it!
