This is one of the most creative pieces of theatre I have ever seen. It is why I love theatre - to take a story with meaning, depth, pathos, humor and beauty and transform it to the stage with the most amazing puppets imaginable - that you...continued

Who wants to see war on valentines day. Cameras in production put out horrible smell into audience, rifle shots scared me and people in front of me where on Facebook shining cell phone lights in my face. I left after one hour. Why would you be...continued

It was fascinating to watch the animatronics with the horses on stage. At first you noticed the men working them, and then later you did not and the horses just came alive. It was wonderfully done and a very moving story. I highly recommend...continued

War Horse was STUNNING! Do yourself a favor and see this. The story is brilliant, the acting is amazing, and the costumes/sets/props are wonderful. I would have paid FULL PRICE to see this!! I just got lucky with this Goldstar deal. Go. Do it!

I enjoyed this very creative and well thought out play. We had the least expensive seats in the very top of the house and we didn't feel like we missed a thing as the visuals of the visuals were compelling and the sound was superb. Money and an...continued

Well, I really, really wanted to really, really like "War Horse", but came away disappointed. Our seats via Goldstar were wonderful; the horse puppets were spectacular, but a lot of the actors' dialogues could not be understood. We think that it...continued

Fantastic! Hard to watch for a horse lover, if you're sentimental about horses or get into a plot vicariously, but it's amazing. The horses are incredible, bigger than life, moving like real horses. I felt drained at the end, tho' - felt like...continued

I enjoyed this performance and was especially impressed with the design of the horses and the individuals who "played" them. The storyline left a little to be desired but didn't hinder my enjoyment generally.

Stunning, unique. The horses seemed so real. Music was wonderful and part of the story, not a typical musical. Definitely recommend that you see it.

This production is wonderful. The horses, the acting, the music were perfect. My family loved the graceful use of technology. The story is touching and is told beautifully. My 12 year old son really wanted to see this show and he was thrilled. We...continued

High on the theatrical spectacle scale, about as close to a musical as you can get without having characters break out in song (though there IS a lot of singing).

A creative and visual show. The only downside was that sometimes the dialogue was difficult to understand due to the nature of the theater and some of the accents. However, it didn't affect our understanding of what was happening in the storyline.

A very dramatic event..a bit shocking at first and then you are overcome by the sheer athletic skills of the actors...very impressive.

The horses and war scenes were amazingly life-like,
and my partner and I were completely engrossed in the story line.

An amazing show! It's hard to describe the experience, you just have to be there yourself.

I have been in the theater business for over 25 years. This is among the 3 or 4 best plays, productions, and experiences I have ever had. I wish there were more tickets through Goldstar so that I could afford to see it again. Thank you from the...continued
