How was your experience?

Clear I hated it I didn't like it It was OK I liked it I loved it!
went to this without having read the book or seen the movie. didn't know what to expect except for amazing puppetry - which did not disappoint. first act was a lil slow but i understand the necessity to establish background about relationship of horse and the lead character. the puppeteers did an excellent job. their presence took some getting used to at first. thought it was great that they were in costumes consistent with the other human characters, instead of being in plain black trying to be hidden. they brought the horses to life with all equine nuances. really impressive. great direction and stage production. took the audiences in the battlefield with effective use of lighting, projections, and sounds. saw it on opening night and will only get even better with each performance. highly recommend the show!
