    What the popular press had to say...

    "If ever a piece of theatre worked magic then it must be War Horse...The key to the show’s almost eerie success is its creation of larger-than-horse-life equines — the puppet-contraptions, Joey and Topthorn."
    Nicholas De Jongh for The Evening Standard

    "Genius isn't too strong a word to describe this astonishing production which has now transferred to the New London Theatre after two sold-out runs at the National Theatre. Puppetry, stage design, music and strong, deeply felt performances combine to turn Michael Morpurgo's fine children's novel into something both greater and grander on stage."
    Charles Spencer for Daily Telegraph

    "The show has adapted perfectly well to the New London stage."
    Michael Billington for The Guardian

    "Be sure not to miss this stunning show."
    Benedict Nightingale for The Times

    "A thundering success."
    Nuala Calvi for The Stage

Looking for the best seats...
