Let me start by saying "I am not a theatre guy"....
It takes a lot to get me into the city or anywhere to sit through an entire show. When I heard that War Horse was about a young man and his beloved pet.... I figured I could relate!
So I headed into the city on a Friday night to the Vivian Beaumont Theater at Lincoln Center. From the opening curtain, I was floored.
War Horse is the best play I've ever seen - meaningful, touching, and at times a bit disturbing. More than a night out, it is a true theatrical experience that you will always remember.
I was impressed with the lighting, music and stage effects, which all perfectly set the tone for the time in history when the story takes place. The militaty scenes are loud and real, and the actors truly give off the raw emotion of war.
The puppetry of the life size horses is just incredible. They move, run, breathe, whinny, snort, rear up, gallop, and suffer as convincingly as a real animal.
I highly recommend seeing War Horse. Get more info HERE
