I was fortunate to be invited to see the War Horse Broadway when it came to Jacksonville, Florida.
What an incredible, once in a lifetime opportunity!
The recreation of the horses was amazing. I’m not sure if they are considered puppets, or what – but whatever they’re called, after a few minutes it’s hard to believe they’re not real horses. The head movements and ear flicks are so real. I told my friend (who isn’t a horse person) that I could see Kobi doing every single one of those movements. At one point the ‘horse’ even scratched an itch on its side.
We weren’t able to take any pictures inside, but I did find a link to internet pictures to help explain this better.
For those of you wondering, yes – I cried…several times. But I would see it again in a heartbeat if the opportunity came up and highly recommend everyone see it if you can.
A must see!
