This is wonderful theater. The sets and the production are creative. The puppets are amazing. It would have been a perfect evening, if we had heard more of the dialogue.... continued

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed War Horse. It is a wonderful show with many theatrical techniques used that one never thinks about. We were struck by the fact they... continued

This was so much more than a play -- it was a powerful, one-of-a-kind theatrical event!

War Horse lived up to the hype. I knew it had received Tony nominations and awards--they were well-deserved. Even though we could see the actors operating the... continued

This play is worth the price of admission just to see the horses. The puppets evoked more feeling from the audience than the actors! The Opera House is beautiful but... continued

Fantastic production. I wished I was a little closer to the stage; with the dialect it was hard to understand what the actors were saying. Very engrossing.

The production was professional and well acted. The story was sad, and simplistic but it held your attention for the most part. It is a play, not a musical. The puppetry is masterful and is the star of the show.

Theatrically brilliant, but I didn't love it. Was definitely glad I went to see it, because the set design and puppeteer work were amazing.

War Horse was very good and it was amazing watching the "horses". After awhile you forgot that they were a type of puppet. I think it would help to understand the play if... continued

We enjoyed the show. The puppetry was impressive. A little "slow" in spots, but it was the first night so they may still be working things out. We were very glad that we went.

Play was good and the horse puppets were amazing. However, it was very difficult to hear/understand a lot of the dialogue. People in the orchestra could read the super... continued
