The way the Gifted puppeteers brought the horse to life was remarkable. This was a beautiful production. Highly recommend.

It was an excellent production. As others have said, one forgets that the horses are puppets-they are so lilfe-like. We totally enjoyed the evening.

It was EXCELLENT. I had enjoyed the movie and was a little skeptical on how it could be stage adapted considering the horses ... it was AMAZING and kept you engaged the whole time. Highly recommended.

Seats were good. No trouble parking and picking up tickets.
Some difficulty hearing the dialogue from some of the actors.
The story and puppetry word captivating.
Enjoyed walking around before hand to see the new sponsor's cars, Acura.

It was wonderful, and the puppets were definitely the best part of the show (it seems so wrong to call them puppets - they are horse-sized works of art that the actors... continued

I did enjoy this production. At first, I thought it was a little odd, seeing the 3 people "controlling" each horse, but after a while, you just sort of stop noticing the... continued

The staging and puppeteering of this production were stellar. I was asked if I liked the play or the movie better. They are equally enjoyable for their own reasons. Go see it. You won't regret.

It was very interesting, but if you had not seen the movie or knew what the play was about you might have gotten lost especially in the first act. I was intrigued by the... continued

Nicely done, if the storyline is a bit predictable. Great special effects. But the Goldstar section - best available was in the middle of Tier 1 - was waaay too far from stage.

Very polished. Very creative. A little slow in places. Could it have used more of the traditional, well known, songs from WW1? A memorable evening.
