“A superb and unique production. Do not miss it.”
Review of War Horse

War Horse
Ranked #4 of 359 Concerts & Shows in London
Attraction details
Reviewed May 15, 2013

This is a superb production with role of horses played by full size puppets that take on their own identity and personalities as play develops. Strong performances by National Theatre based cast. Have not left a theatre feeling as I did about this production since I first saw Les Miserables 25 years ago. Brilliant and thank you to all cast members. Wonderful theatre.

This is the second time I have seen this show and it won't be the last! The actors are very skilled and the music magical. My favourite part was when Baby Joey transformed into a fully grown horse, what a spectacle. This show is not to be missed.

Have seen this 3 times and would go once a week if I had the finances to do so! Just an amazing piece of theatre: I'm still captivated by the horses. See it more than once if you can - you'll notice lots of fantastic details on your return visits. Take a supply of tissues!

Technically this show is brilliant - after 10 seconds you don't notice the actors/puppeteers, and you forget that the horses aren't real! It really is a fantastic spectacle. However I found the 2nd half of the show rather slow and a tad tedious. Perhaps my expectations had been set too high by friends and colleagues raving about the whole experience.
