Seats in Upper Orchestra were excellent, the production is very cleverly done - sets, animated animals, war scenes, etc. But, the characters are not really believable, esp since every line is delivered by shouting at each other. The "Cirque du...continued

It just wasn't my type of show. However, I was somewhat interested in seeing it and for a discount ticket price I took the chance that I might like it... I'm thankful for Goldstar otherwise I would not have gone and paid the full price...

Description

War Horse centers on the relationship between Albert, a teenager growing up on a farm in Devon, England, just before World War I, and his beloved half-thoroughbred horse, Joey. Albert’s family is poor, and his father raises cash by selling Joey to the cavalry as the war begins in 1914. Too young to enlist, Albert craves news of his horse, which was shipped to the battlefield in France. Three years later, Albert runs away to join the army, determined to find Joey and bring him home. Meanwhile, this smart and brave horse is pulled into service on both sides of the conflict before being left on his own in no-man’s-land, surrounded by trenches and barbed wire. It’s a universal story about hope in the face of adversity, and the production is an anthem for peace.

Running Time: 2 hours, 40 minutes (with a 15-minute intermission)

Parental Guidance: War Horse has very broad appeal to theatergoers of any age. The production contains themes of military action and is therefore recommended for ages 10 and older.
