Last night I braved the storm to go see War Horse. Such a good decision! I like to think that I go to quite a bit of theatre - whether or not that's true - I can honestly say that this was one of the BEST productions I have ever seen. The story was so sweet and moving, the set was incredible, the cast magnificent, and the puppets were lifelike beyond belief. Plus who doesn't love going to Lincoln Center for an evening out? I cannot believe it took me so long to see this show.
If you've been wanting to see War Horse, now is the time to go. It's a winter show, so it feels appropriate to go when it's cold out. But more important, the play is due to close January 6th - so get your tickets before it's too late. I don't want to give any of the story away (I already feel like I've shared too much posting scene images, just couldn't resist) but I will say that this performance was without a doubt five stars in my book. The whole thing is just magical. I'm hoping to go again before it closes - that's how much I loved it!
