The West Coast premiere of The National Theatre production of War Horse opened yesterday at Center Theatre Group/Ahmanson Theatre. Performances for the powerful drama will continue through July 29, 2012. View red carpet photos below!
The National Theatre’s epic War Horse is the winner of five 2011 Tony Awards including Best Play. Michael Morpurgo’s novel “War Horse” is also the inspiration for Steven Spielberg’s feature film of the same name, which has garnered six Oscar nominations including Best Picture.
War Horse is the powerful story of young Albert’s beloved horse, Joey, who has been enlisted to fight for the English in World War I. In a tale the New York Daily Newscalls “spellbinding, by turns epic and intimate,” Joey is caught in enemy crossfire and ends up serving both sides of the war before landing in no man’s land. Albert, not old enough to enlist, embarks on a treacherous mission to find his horse and bring him home. What follows is a remarkable tale of courage, loyalty and friendship, filled with stirring music and songs and told with the some of the most innovative stagecraft of our time.
