Notes From James:
Winner of five 2011 Tony Awards including Best Play of the Year is War Horse The show which opened in the West End in March 2009 continues to be one of London's most popular shows. Not to bad for a show that has been playing for almost four years. Now for those of you who are unfamiliar with the show I have included a synopsis of the play from the shows official website. Enjoy!
At the outbreak of World War One, Joey, young Albert's beloved horse, is sold to the cavalry and shipped to France. He's soon caught up in enemy fire and fate takes him on an extraordinary odyssey, serving on both sides before finding himself alone and in no man's 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.
As of now the show is only selling tickets thru October of this year. However I am sure that it will be playing for a long time to come. We shall see.
