Hailed as "the best musical of this century" by Ben Brantley of The New York Times and "the funniest musical of all time" by Entertainment Weekly, The Book of Mormon won nine Tony Awards -- including Best Musical -- in its first year on Broadway. Written by South Park creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone along with Robert Lopez, the Tony-winning co-creator of Avenue Q, this musical comedy is a show that The Daily Show's Jon Stewart has called "a crowning achievement. So good it makes me angry." 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.
