A to Z Blogging: War Horse Review
So the other night we got to see the play production of War Horse. Oh my gosh, it was AWESOME! When we knew we'd be seeing this one, we wondered how they could do a play about a horse, on the stage.
With the coolest puppets ever! That's how. I can't describe it so let's see if there's something on YouTube....
There's three people making him work, but after awhile, you forget about them and it's just a horse, a horse that seems totally alive. It was awesome. And with our front and center seats (literally front and center) we got a very close up look at this most awesome puppet. I have no words. It really was amazing.
The kid that played Albert was awesome too. He could show emotion like you wouldn't believe.
And the war scenes. So intense! It felt like we were right in the middle of the action. Guns, and smoke and scary scary stuff.
It's a play, not a musical but there was music. Lots of wonderful Irish folk songs, complete with the accordian and all.
It was definatley a hold your breath sort of play. I loved it. So glad to have had the opportunity to go. If you get the chance, don't pass it up. Go!
Here's a little trailer:
