Reviewed 4 August 2017 via mobile

To date, this is still the best show I've ever seen (and I've seen a lot). A truly incredible performance. I balled my eyes out at the end, which is a compliment considering It takes a lot for me to cry. Such a clever clever show. So excited for the UK tour to see it again:)

I had to go twice to this Moving story. I was captivated by the "Horses" and completely drawn into the horror that the poor horses in the first world war underwent. I forgot that the horses on stage were not real-- I thought the whole show was very very well done and very moving. The Riders were also excellent -- it made me realise what awful conditions Men and Beasts had to cope with -- in a way that films had not done. I have seen the Film twice but somehow those " Puppets" made it seem more real.

Thought I would be smart and buy end seats so it would be easy to come and go. Spent a lot of the night looking at the rear end of the horse. I thought it was very slow and the music was not inspiring

Not often I am moved to write reviews, but this is an epic show that deserves as many verbal accolades heaping upon it as is humanly possible. However, I lack the vocabulary grand enough to do it suitable justice, therefore I will say only this...go and see it, I'll wager my Shed you won't be sorry...!

I work in Covent Garden surrounded by theatres and whenever people ask for a recommendation I say war horse. Best. Play. Ever.
The horses are wooden and moved by actors. After 5 minutes you no longer see the actors, and it's literally like there's horses running on the stage. Incredible. But definitely bring your tissues- reduced my entire row to tears.
