Theatre Epic WAR HORSE, Winner of Five 2011 Tony® Awards, Rides Into the Fox Theatre Sept. 25-30

US National Tour of WAR HORSE
I've been waiting for this one for months...and since seeing the preview at Center for Puppetry Arts (where we were able to see how "Joey" will be presented on the larger stage), my anticipation has grown even more! And we have opening night tickets for one lucky winner too - scroll down for the giveaway!

The National Theatre’s epic WAR HORSE, winner of five 2011 Tony® Awards including Best Play, will make its Atlanta debut at the Fox Theatre September 25-30, as part of the Fifth Third Bank Broadway in Atlanta 2012-13 season. WAR HORSE has been seen by almost 2 million people worldwide and is currently playing at New York’s Lincoln Center Theater, in London’s West End, and at Toronto’s Princess of Wales Theatre.

Michael Morpurgo’s novel, War Horse, is also the inspiration for Steven Spielberg’s feature film of the same name, which earned six Oscar nominations including Best Picture.

Hailed by The New York Times as “theatrical magic,” 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 News calls “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.

The tour of WAR HORSE, based on the beloved novel by Michael Morpurgo and adapted by Nick Stafford, will be directed by Bijan Sheibani based on the original Tony® Award-winning direction by Marianne Elliott and Tom Morris, and presented in association with Handspring Puppet Company. At the heart of the show are life-sized puppets which bring breathing, galloping, charging horses to thrilling life on stage.

In addition to Best Play, WAR HORSE received Tony® Awards for Best Direction of a Play (Marianne Elliott and Tom Morris), Best Scenic Design of a Play (Rae Smith), Best Lighting Design of a Play (Paule Constable), and Best Sound Design of a Play (Christopher Shutt). A Special Tony Award was given to Handspring Puppet Company for their integral work on the production.
