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

As this was written up as a hip-hop infused dance company, I was a little confused during the first half of the show since it was nothing like that! I do appreciate all genres of dance, however, I wasn't that impressed with the first half. The second half was much better and the last dance was probably the best. I am glad I went through Goldstar and didn't pay full price for the tickets, otherwise I might have been more disappointed. As it was, it was a decent show for a decent price.
Quotes & Highlights
- “The formal clarity and controlled elegance of ballet [and] the raw, athletic exuberance of street dance.”<strong> --</strong><em>Boston Globe</em>
Known on the streets of Los Angeles as Rubberband, Victor Quijada became a dancer in Twyla Tharp’s company, and then with Les Grands Ballets Canadiens de Montreal where he was embraced by the Quebecois community of artists. His relatively new company is just now coming into its own on the international stage, uniting world-class dancers from ballet, contemporary and breakdance backgrounds to explore dance through an innovative mix of hip-hop dynamics and contemporary classicism. Rubberbandance’s captivating perspective on the freedom of urban dance, music and movement includes a crowd-pleasing duet set to a recording by Luciano Pavarotti and Joan Sutherland. Imagine if you can: hip-hop á La Traviata.
