We took our son to see War Horse as a belated birthday present.....There was a long waiting list for tickets !!
We came up to London to Paddington and took a reasonably-priced taxi to Covent Garden for our Lunch then walked to the theatre for the afternoon matinee. The stage rotates and sticks out into the audience !
We throughly enjoyed the show and we had great seats two rows back on the right (just behind the "trench")
It is easy to believe that the horses and other animals and birds were real. The people who were working them must have spent a great deal of time observing movement of real animals....Ears twitched. tails wagged and you could see them actually "breathing" ! (the animals not the humans)
When it finished we left the theatre saying how good it was...and bumped into some of the actors including "Muller" who had come out for fresh air before they started the evening show.
In all, it is a very good, unique and novel show..
After the show we went to the Strada Italian restaurant which I have reviewed favourably elsewhere. (qv)
