Having seen the film more than once, I was pleased to have the chance of seeing this production. I can only congratulate all who were involved, the animatronics were extremely clever and I just loved the goose. I shed a few tears and am not goind to read the book which I have had for a while but have been... More

The movement of the horses were amazing, sometimes you forget they are not real. we sat in the circle row b seats 59 and 60 view was very good. My only downer was we found the leg room very tight

Takes you through every emotion! Ultimately moving and uplifting. The 'puppetry' is extraordinary, beautiful and totally convincing.

Had seen the movie, but the stage show is a real masterpiece. Staging in so good it is hard to believe you are watching puppets! Theater is nice size and all seats offer great visibility. A must see if in London

It is an experience worth seeing but it is not Shakespeare or Tennessee Williams. The reason to go is to see the "puppets". The effect of the horses (and other animals) is enchanting. The story is primarily directed at children and is somewhat softened for this younger audience. Overall it is a worthy performance.

We absolutely loved the performance of Warhorse. The puppetry is amazing and after a while you don't realise that the horses are being controlled by actors. With the centenary of WW1 upon us then a visit to the New London Theatre to see Warhorse should be a must.

Everything was good. Story, stage mechanics, the 'horses'...great show :-) Really good to take children, too, as they were amazed.

We had seats quite close to the stage - every small movement of the horses could be seen, from the twitch of an ear to the tremor of fear. The simplicity of the set and the sheer magic of the skill shown by the cast held me spellbound. Time flew past as the story unfolded. So very much enjoyed ....... More
