Endearing.. amazing.. enthralling! This is a story of a special bond between an unlikely pair, the journey they both face during the devastating years of war, and the people they encounter in their life's path while hoping to reunite with one...continued

A brilliant production. The puppetry was done so well that after a few minutes, you thought that you were seeing real horses. This was theatre at it's best.They deserved their standing ovation.

See it while it's still playing.

A beautiful production of a life-affirming story...as much a pageant as a play. The stagecraft and artistry of the puppeteers were truly stunning. Also, this is one show you can actually enjoy from the "cheap seats".

The horror of war through the eyes of a horse and the lives of the people he touches along the way. Beautifully told. Bring your handkerchief, you are going to need it for the entire second act.

I found "War Horse" tremendously disappointing. The gimmick of giant puppets as horses is not enough. You still need a story that's worth the time you're spending. There's so much talent on stage in terms of directing and design – as well as...continued

The puppets are amazing as well as the special affects. Watching the stage play is so different than the movie.

War Horse was a wonderfully imaginative telling of a heartfelt story. Told with a minamalist set, the production covers a broad timespan and terain while managing to be visually stunning and compelling. My wife and I enjoyed it immensely.

I thought the motion and controlling of the "horses" was amazing! So lifelike that you forgot there were people there inside and along side the horse's frame. The acting performances were great! I understand now why it received so many tony awards.

The Production was excellent. It was a bit difficult to hear all the dialogue from the rear of the mezzanine but the visuals were amazing. I highly recommend this as an unusual theatrical experience. I had heard the puppetry was terrific and...continued

If you saw the movie and fear that it might interfere with your enjoyment of this theatrical experience... fear not. This show is BRILLIANT. Do you have concerns about sitting so high and far from the stage? DON'T! The staging and stagecraft of...continued

I thought it was going to be better. The horses were interesting and the story was ok. It kind of dragged at points but otherwise I thought it was average.

Found the script very trite and predicatable. Did not enjoy the show at all. Our son left at intermission as did the couple that happened to be sitting next to him

Amazing. I truly believe it is the "Nicolas Nickleby" of this decade. Innovative, exciting and imaginative. The story is a simple melodrama and most of the characters, except the German Captain, do not develop as fully as one would like. I saw...continued
