War Horse, winner of five 2011 Tony® Awards including Best Play, returns to Los Angeles making its Pantages Theatre debut for one week only October 8 13.
A heart-warming tale of loyalty and friendship, War Horse tells the story of young Albert and his beloved horse, Joey. When Joey is sold to the cavalry and shipped from England to France, he is soon caught up in enemy fire and fate takes him on an extraordinary journey, serving on both sides before finding himself alone in no-mans land. But Albert cannot forget Joey and, still not old enough to enlist, he embarks on a treacherous mission to find him and bring him home.
Based on the beloved novel by Michael Morpurgo, this powerfully moving and imaginative drama, filled with stirring music and songs, is a show of phenomenal inventiveness that is currently playing to packed houses in London and around the world. At its heart are astonishing life-sized puppets created by South Africas Handspring Puppet Company, that bring to life breathing, galloping, charging horses strong enough for men to ride.
