I had to go twice to this Moving story. I was captivated by the "Horses" and completely drawn into the horror that the poor horses in the first world war underwent. I forgot that the horses on stage were not real-- I thought the whole...More

Thought I would be smart and buy end seats so it would be easy to come and go. Spent a lot of the night looking at the rear end of the horse. I thought it was very slow and the music was not inspiring

Not often I am moved to write reviews, but this is an epic show that deserves as many verbal accolades heaping upon it as is humanly possible. However, I lack the vocabulary grand enough to do it suitable justice, therefore I will say only this...go...More

I work in Covent Garden surrounded by theatres and whenever people ask for a recommendation I say war horse. Best. Play. Ever. The horses are wooden and moved by actors. After 5 minutes you no longer see the actors, and it's literally like there's horses...More

I was a bit unsure about this show when my son bought me tickets for my birthday. Went along and took me a bit of time to get used to the horse being animated/managed by a young man. However, I got so drawn into the...More

The thing that I was extremely impressed with was the puppetry. You could tell that the horses were puppets, but their movements were so realistic and life like, it was mind blowing. Good facilities, interesting play, I would recommend this!!

Great show with a sad story to it which is like an emotional roller coaster and keeps you drawn in. The guys who were doing the puppeting for the horse were absolutely brilliant throughout. Highly recommend!

Kinky boots if it is still on! Monty python if you know their work, great stage adaptation of the film. There are literally hundreds of plays to see, if you want great drama, war horse - unbelievable stage production. Enjoy!!
