Warhorse was in one word BRILLIANT! If you go to the Lyric make sure you buy a gelato in the foyer. The selections and quality is superb.

“War Horse - and the rustle of wrappers”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 18, 2013

We went to see War Horse at the Lyric Theatre. What a fantastic theatre experience - brilliant! The theatre itself allows a great view wherever seating (we were upstairs). My only complaint about the theatre itself was the sale of snacks that included the endlessly annoying noisy wrappers (chips, icecreams in cellophane etc). We had three teenagers next to us all eating chips, and a couple of middle aged people just in front eating chips, rustling away. They seemed oblivious to the pathos of the story and insensitive to the effect of the noise on others - the enjoyment of patrons around us was definitely diminished by the noise in the quieter scenes. But the real problem is that the theatre sells such items in the first place and allows patrons to have food inside the theatre itself during the performance. Highly surprising - I'd definitely like to see that changed. There is an interval so no-one's going to starve if they can't have a snack during the performance. It's theatre, for heavens sake! But apart from that issue, the experience at the Lyric Theatre and the performance of War Horse was fantastic.
