War Horse: A must-see event,
Jun 12, 2012
reviewer: from Lewisville, TX
Go to KERA TV Making War Horse and click on OFFICIAL WEBSITE for a glimpse of the life-sized horse puppet in action, held up by three people.If you saw the June 2012 KERA-TV production re The Making of War Horse then you KNOW that this performance is an absolute must-see event.

Theatrical Magic,
Jun 22, 2012
reviewer: from Los Angeles
I'm only rating the show FIVE STARS because the scale doesn't allow for more. This is one of the most visceral, heart wrenching yet ultimately joyous evenings you are ever apt to spend in a theater. And the horses are pure magic: within seconds of their appearance onstage, they are real.

Must see theatre!,
Jul 01, 2012
reviewer: from Anytown, AT 55555
We had the opportunity to see War Horse in London 2 years ago and my husband and I were both spellbound! The horses are alive after the first few scenes...it's a tragic yet amazing, uplifting play that will keep you talking for days!

Warhorse is Magic!,
Jun 10, 2013
reviewer: from Providence, Rhode Island
Warhorse is magic. A wonderful story which is so masterfully and innovatively portrayed. The puppet horses are real in appearance and as characters. The puppeteers do a most amazing job as you see them but they vanish, userped by the acting and movement they instill in these puppets. The human actors, the singers and the entire cast are wonderful. The production was unique, fascinating and so successful in bringing this book and movie to life on stage. It delivers an evening of pure entertainment on so many levels and provided one of the most enjoyable nights ever here at the Providence Performing Arts Center. Thanks to all who put this show together.

excellant production,
Sep 25, 2013
reviewer: from Vancouver Island, BC
Saw this production in Toronto and was thoroughly blown away. I had seen the movie twice, and the theatre production was so realistic and the puppetry so professional, one forgot very quickly that this was a play. I would see again in a minute.
