Had a delicious dinner across the street from the Curran at Colibri Mexican Bistro. Really delicious food--ambiance not so much. Ask to sit in the back.

See the artistry of the PLAY - soooo much better than the Spielberg film! Only problems: Bring earplugs because the techies have gone nuts with amplifying the music and warfare, and don't expect great seats out of Goldstar tickets in the Curran.

Given the awards and raves from friends who saw this in NYC I was quite disappointed. I would definitely recommend AGAINST seeing this show in any seats other than Loge or front half of orchestra. The show loses a lot in terms of visuals and...continued

An amazing performance - the puppetry for the horses really captured the movement and spirit of the animals and imbued them with a sense of character. Highly recommend this production.

Description

War Horse is the powerful story of young Albert’s beloved horse, Joey, who has been enlisted to fight for the English in World War I. Joey is caught in enemy crossfire and ends up serving both sides of the war before landing in no man’s land. Albert, not old enough to enlist, embarks on a treacherous mission to find his horse and bring him home. What follows is a remarkable tale of courage, loyalty and friendship, told with the some of the most innovative stagecraft of our time.

War Horse, based on the beloved novel by Michael Morpurgo and adapted for the stage by Nick Stafford, directed by Marianne Elliott and Tom Morris, and presented in association with Handspring Puppet Company, is filled with stirring music and songs. At the heart of the show are life-sized puppets which bring breathing, galloping, charging horses to thrilling life on stage.

This show is recommended for ages 12 and older.
