stupendous - the puppeteers do an incredible job, such that you don't notice them. The flashes of light into the audience seemed a little too bright for the bombs blasting.

Very well done. It isn't what I'm use to at Segerstrom Center. I was expecting dancing and singing but this was very enjoyable.

My son had read the book and loved it so his grandparents took him to the show for his 10 birthday. Having read the book helped him follow the story and enjoy the performance. The puppetry is amazing. The horses look as if they are actually...continued

The production was great. The puppetry with the horses was fantastic. So real that you could forget they were puppets and not real horses.

The SHOW was excellent, but the seating was terrible. This theater is a tragedy - only a few dozen rows are decent seats, the rest are atrocious. My brother and I sat in atrocious seats.
We could not understand 80% of the dialogue (and...continued

We took the kids (12 yr old boy and 9 yr old girl) to see War Horse and they really enjoyed it. My husband thought it was a little slow at times, but probably because he loved the movie so much. We were all totally impressed with how they did the...continued

Awesome production. The horse puppets are unbelievable and when you're watching you forget that you're seeing something manipulated by a human being. Moving, creative and a "must-see".
