Features: Based on the beloved 1982 children's book by Michael Morpurgo, War Horse Broadway tells the story of Joey, a young horse who is shipped to France to serve in the Allied cavalry at the outbreak of World War I. When Joey's beloved owner, the young Albert Narracott, learns that his horse has been sold against his will, he undertakes a dangerous journey to rescue him from behind enemy lines.

Why We Go: War Horse Broadway was the winner of six Tony Awards, including Best Play and Best Direction of a Play. Handspring Puppet Company, the makers of the elaborate and lifelike horse puppets, also won a Special Tony Award.

  • Breathtaking Puppets: One thing is for certain: you've never seen anything like the puppets in War Horse Broadway. Every nuance, every equine mannerism, is painstakingly brought to life by the Handspring Puppet Company. These lifelike puppets are the reason War Horse tickets are selling out fast.
  • Timeless Story: War Horse on Broadway is based on the beloved children's book by Michael Morpurgo. It is a story of love and friendship and the atrocities of war and, as such, it is timeless.
  • Great Acting: While Joey the horse is the real star of War Horse on Broadway, the Tony Award-winning play also features an outstanding cast of players, including Seth Numrich and Matt Doyle.

Inside Knowledge: War Horse Broadway will soon be coming to the Silver Screen, as Steven Spielberg has directed the movie adaptation of the book, which will be released in December 2011.

Do's and Don'ts:

  • Do Bring Tissues: War Horse Broadway is nothing if not a tear-jerker. Even grown men may want to have a box of tissues handy.
  • Do Look for the Movie: Steven Spielberg's adaptation of the War Horse play will arrive in theaters in December 2011. Don't miss it!
  • Don't Forget the Kids: War Horse on Broadway is based on the popular children's book by Michael Morpurgo. As you would expect, the play is appropriate for kids (although it can be frightening and sad).
  • Don't Wait for War Horse Tickets: War Horse tickets are in high demand now that the play has won Tonys. Be sure to buy your War Horse tickets well in advance to ensure you get the performance time you desire.
