London's National Theatre is broadcasting its original stage production of the international smash hit War Horse, and you can catch it in HD at the Irvine Barclay Theatre. Hailed for its "blast of pure theatrical imagination" by Newsday, this one-of-a-kind theatrical event places the actors on stage with astonishing life-sized horse puppets by South Africa's Handspring Puppet Company. These beautiful creations act out the epic story of Joey, a farm horse sold to the cavalry in World War I, and Albert, the boy who trained and bonded with Joey on the farm, who embarks on a dangerous journey to rescue his beloved horse from behind enemy lines. Experience the live theater event that won five Tony Awards in 2011 and inspired the Academy Award-nominated film by Steven Spielberg. Learn More
Reviews & Ratings
Philippe Petit is known as the perpetrator of the most infamous high-wire caper in the world. As the man who walked a wire between the Twin Towers [110 stories above the ground], Petit was the subject of last year's Oscar-winning documentary Man On Wire. Now, he comes down to earth to display his many unusual talents on the Irvine Barclay Theatre stage.
A beguiling evening of storytelling, juggling and magic, Petit shares his experiences as a writer, pickpocket, barn builder, bullfighter, engineer and Renaissance man. It's an entertaining night about creativity and achieving the impossible from the man who pulled off what Time Magazine dubbed "the artistic crime of the century."
