This live musical by ABBA's Benny Andersson and Björn Ulvaeus -- recently made into a top-grossing movie starring Meryl Streep -- tells the story of a mother, a daughter, three possible dads, and an unforgettable trip down the aisle. Bride-to-be Sophie wants nothing more than to have her father at her wedding. But there's a problem: She has no idea which of mom Donna's three former boyfriends might be the guy. So, Sophie invites them all to the festivities, surprising her fiercely independent mom and Donna's two best gal pals. The show's tale of enduring love and friendship features the fabulous hit songs "Dancing Queen," "S.O.S.," "The Winner Takes It All," "Take a Chance on Me" and the title tune. Learn More

Amazing artistic production. Minimal stage set, torn paper with drawing projections, and mechanical horses were all fantastic. I saw the production in Boston and jumped at the chance to see it again in Providence. Highly recommended.
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 one 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.
