While we were in London this time, we were able to get tickets for “War Horse” at the New London Theatre. What a production! In the first couple of seconds, you think, “…puppets? can I really watch a show full of puppets…?” Then after a few moments, the horses become as real as the humans on stage. Big, gorgeous, unpredictable horses who paw the ground and rear back and twitch their muscles. You see them breathing hard after a run – you see fear in their movements, or sometimes joy. Really impressive – and of course, a tear jerker. I haven’t seen the movie – but not sure that I want to after this. It might ruin it for me.
