“Sad and sombre but memorable experience with a far-fetched ending”
Review of War Horse

War Horse
Ranked #4 of 362 Concerts & Shows in London

Reviewed November 6, 2012

The play was evocative of WW1, and the way in which the horses were portrayed was ingenious. The play has a most unlikely ending which perhaps detracted rom the effect of the whole experience.

Not a show that would've been high on my list of theatre musts (I was given the tickets), I cannot fault the performance at all. It was so enjoyable, and so very different. It is all too easy to forget that the horses are puppets, the actors creating the animation were fantastic, and the sound effects made you think that you were really on location. Very very good. It's worth going to see just because it's a totally different type of west end show. Fantastic. And take a tissue!

Please don't miss this wonderful show, and take your tissues with you. The story is very touching but the puppetry is mind blowing to such an extent that you rapidly forget that the horses are not real. Amazing!

This production is amazing. The puppetry makes it just that bit different. Thoroughly enjoyed the whole production.

It was incredible. Don't miss it. Within about five minutes you think the horses are real and the ending is soooooooo much better than the smulchy piece of rubbish Spielberg put on the end of his film.
