Because there were no other shows at Broward Center, parking in garage was a breeze but be prepared to pay at meter with singles or credit card. $1/hr, show was over by 10p.

Or, add your own... the new Club Section is really great. It is an extra $60 for Food, Drinks, Desserts and comfort of the lounge.

Seats in Upper Orchestra were excellent, the production is very cleverly done - sets, animated animals, war scenes, etc. But, the characters are not really believable, esp since every line is delivered by shouting at each other. The "Cirque du...continued

Loved the set/puppetry and story although I had a great deal of difficulty understanding dialog as it was VERY BRITISH and sometimes indisinguishable. The story line was easy to follow just by the incredible filmed portions on the stage screen as...continued

Description

War Horse centers on the relationship between Albert, a teenager growing up on a farm in Devon, England, just before World War I, and his beloved half-thoroughbred horse, Joey. Albert’s family is poor, and his father raises cash by selling Joey to the cavalry as the war begins in 1914. Too young to enlist, Albert craves news of his horse, which was shipped to the battlefield in France. Three years later, Albert runs away to join the army, determined to find Joey and bring him home. Meanwhile, this smart and brave horse is pulled into service on both sides of the conflict before being left on his own in no-man’s-land, surrounded by trenches and barbed wire. It’s a universal story about hope in the face of adversity, and the production is an anthem for peace.

Running Time: 2 hours, 40 minutes (with a 15-minute intermission)

Parental Guidance: War Horse has very broad appeal to theatergoers of any age. The production contains themes of military action and is therefore recommended for ages 10 and older.
