Loved the show, Warhorse. Amazing is the word That captures the essence of the play. It's just incredible real the horses seem so alive. My tickets were great. I was in the center and I loved it thanks. Goldstar

My wife and I are both theatre majors and have done lots of acting, costuming, and set design & construction. We see many productions, all with a critical eye. From that perspective, we found the integration of film (on what appeared to be a torn...continued

Some good humor and an emotional ending. It dragged a bit during the war scenes and the audio was, at many times, undecipherable. Overall it was enjoyable but did not live up to all the hype written by the critics.

The horse puppets were amazing and make seeing the play worthwhile. We both agreed that having seen the movie beforehand made the play easier to understand. At the beginning of the play a man opened a book as if he was going to be the...continued

The puppetry was wonderful but the voices were very muted and with heavy accents it was hard to follow at times. We got the drift. We plan to see the movie and sort it all out.

The show was amazing. You really do forget the horses are not real. The sets and the acting were impressive. I can not say enough on how much I enjoyed this production of War Horse.

This was an exciting, creative theatrical event--riveting for any number of reasons--costumes, singing, story line, horses. We sat in the "nosebleed section," but didn't lose any of the subtlety or nuance of the production.

This was a masterful staging event. After awhile, the horses seemed alive. And the story is very interesting with humor and sadness. The music was placed at appropriate times to further along the story. I would recommend this for children 12...continued

We enjoyed the show greatly. The sharp british accents did not allow us ttp understand much of the dialogue. The movements of the horses was spectacular.

We had nosebleed seats, way up high in the rafters, but the production was so large that it really wasn't all that bad. I can only imagine how intimidating the puppet tank must have been down in the orchestra pit (that thing was massive!). I...continued

We took our 15 year old son to see this and ALL of us loved it ! He was just in awe of the horses and has dubbed Warshorse his "all time favorite".. and of course the "goose" stole part of the show.. We will probably go see it again before it...continued
