No other play has affected me nearly as much as War Horse had when I saw it April 4th, 2012. The puppetry is beyond fasntastic, and as is the story, though simple, as well as the stirirng music. I hope WarHorse makes another return to Toronto!

I have seen many plays and War Horse is by far the best. Soon after it begins, you forget they're puppets and you realize they actually have life and feeling. Every emotion is covered in this wonderful play. I saw it on Feb. 18 in Toronto. Will definitely travel to Toronto to see it again.

I was blown away by this show. I went into the theatre not expecting very much, I didn't quite understand the hype. Within the first few minutes of the show, I was hooked! This is definitely a must see production.

My wife and I attended the first preview for WarHorse here in Toronto. We were astounded by the beautiful puppetry. You simply forget horses are being manipulated by puppeteers. It's a wonderful show, with fantastic performances by the entire cast. I will take my nieces to come see it during the later part of the run. I agree though I wouldn't bring anyone younger than 6 to the show.

I am an old horse riding instructor and trainer and I loved it!!!! They were so spot on, I couldn't believe it. Even after seeing the movie, I was at the edge of my seat the whole time!!! Fantastic work!!!!! I would definitely see it again if I ever get another chance!!!

I saw this play in London with my 3 children (two teenagers and a 10 year old). We absolutely loved it. The story is something everyone can identify with even if you're not a horse person (I'm certainly not). The horses are incredible, the acting superb, the costumes perfect. We were mesmerized and can't wait to see it in Toronto!
