Saw War Horse in Festival Theatre in Edinburgh, fantastic production with amazing work by the puppeteers , it was hard to believe the horses weren’t real! Really gripping and moving story brilliantly produced.The theatre itself was very nice with a excellent sound system . Bill

We splurged and bought really good seats for this show (although in retrospect, no seat in the theater would really be bad), and we loved the experience. There was a kids' school group there to see the show, as well, and they were a fun...More

I've actually seen this play twice. The first time, we didn't have a detailed expectation & we were overwhelmed by the whole theatrical experience. To say that the horses are 'puppets' doesn't begin to express how amazing they are. Even with the puppeteers in full...More

Went to see this spectacular show last night. It's a phenomenon. The connection between man and horse is depicted with strength and depth that cannot fail to impress and stir the emotions. A must see. 🐴🐎

Kinky boots if it is still on! Monty python if you know their work, great stage adaptation of the film. There are literally hundreds of plays to see, if you want great drama, war horse - unbelievable stage production. Enjoy!!
