War Horse is a story about a boy whose father gets a horse when he is young. The boy and the horse grow up together. When the horse is sold to the army, the boy decides to enlist so he can be near his horse.
I haven't seen the movie, but the show on broadway was fairly enjoyable. It lasted almost three hours (including one intermission) and it felt a bit slow at times, but the story was reasonably engaging.
War Horse is a beautiful play - both the music and the puppetry were a beauty to watch. The story was a bit slow and I would have been happier if the show was an hour shorter, but it was still fairly entertaining.
come on War Horse is freakin' awesome!!!!! -I💚BROADWAY-
While the story isn't the best, the amazing puppetry makes up for it.
