Beautifully simplistic staging, stunning puppetry & fantastic storytelling. Utterly spellbinding & not a dry eye in the house. Another spectacular NT production. One of the best pieces of theatre I have seen and one of my top three! Highly recommended.

All what you read about this show is true , I cannot finds anymore words to describe it . So emotional and moving , you almost forget the horse isn't real and the cast members working the controls fade into the background. Two and a half hours of pure escapism . Truly loved it .

We went especially to London to see War Horse. Having seen the film we knew what to expect and found the show to be just as emotional. The horses looked to real. The set was minimalistic but highly effective. What a brilliant portayal of war horses and their story. A must see.

I bought the discount tickets and did not have much expectation of it. But this show just wow me! The stage setting, the protrait of the horse, the story line, the love of the family during the war, it has all it takes to make it spectacular. The show was so overwhelming and made me cry....

Even after reading reviews was not expecting to be moved, exited, amazed and left full of admiration for a wonderful production. What a fabulous show, can't begin to have enough words to praise the skill, the energy, the commitment of all the cast. Joey is real, yes!!

Absolutely incredible show - the best i have seen and wasn't expecting to enjoy it! The staging , the horses and acting are all superb. Felt gripped from the start , the pace kept moving- very emotional and uplifting to watch. The animals seemed totally real and the puppetry was so clever. Unique and a must for everyone to see.

We got great tickets from Amazon Local for a great price. The theatre is within east reach of the subway and has restraunts and shops near by. The show itself is spectacular. Expect to laugh, cry, and scream!

We had seats J37/38 in the stalls - very good location - no obstructions, good full view of the stage, well recommended. The performance was excellent and... More
