This was a wonderful play, does a very good job of recreating the motion picture. The puppetry of the horses was fantastic--you will literally believe the horses are alive on stage. Very good performances by all the cast. This is a dramatic play...continued

Thank you Goldstar for the wonderful seats! This was a special event as I took my 2 grandsons for their first play. We loved the way the actors (puppeteers?) who controlled the horses' movements did such a fantastic job that it was easy to forget...

I have not seen the movie, but after I read about the Tony nomination for the shows creation of lifelike horses I had to see what the big fuss was about. I was not disappointed! The horses were full size and could accommodate riders. The...continued

The Puppetry was amazing but this show was very slow. Probably not really something younger kids would enjoy.

One of the best shows we've seen at the Pantages, the music, the story, and the puppetry were incredible. Got great seats with Goldstar, Row C, aisle. Closest we've ever been!

The play was good, actors fine, music interesting and the staging of the horses was wonderful. However, I did not enjoy the play as much as I should have because the lighting was really bad. In an effort to create a special effect it was reallly...continued

The play was amazingly staged. Just the production value alone was worth twice the ticket price. But the story itself was touching and emotionally immersive. Great performances (some even better than in the movie version). If I hadn't seen it on...continued

the bad news: the dialogue is frequently unintelligible, owing to the British accents & other speech affectations.
the good news: it is a simple story with an easily followable plot line.
the great news: the stagecraft is fabulous! worth the...continued

Spectacular! A must see. Run time approx. 2:45 including late start and about 15- 20 min intermission. The performance and pupeteering was phenomenal. This first half was the fastest moving play I've attended. The story line, acting, and singing...continued

I enjoyed the play. It kept me entertained all night.
Loved the visual effects & horse movements. It looked very real & the sound effects were right on. You would think there were real horses there on stage.
