London's National Theatre is broadcasting its original stage production of the international smash hit War Horse, and you can catch a live screening of the production at the Leonard Nimoy Thalia at Symphony Space. 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 beauty and drama of the original London production that won five Tony Awards in 2011 and inspired the Academy Award-nominated film by Steven Spielberg. Learn More
