It was great to be able to see this 'play'. The puppeteers who operate the horses were incredible. The acting and staging were well done. I like the 'movie version' better. Few people can afford to actually see a big production play live, so it's wonderful to be able to see these popular plays on the big screen.

Ironically enough, I am a first time viewer of this legendary masterpiece, I enjoyed from start to end. During WW II, this is the touching story of a boy, and the great extents that he would go through for the love of his horse. When, everyone is ready to give up, he instead becomes more determined to become reunited with his horse. There is a rumor that the play is set to arrive to a Broadway in the fall. I look forward to planning to see it in the future.

I didn't think I was going to be able to suspend my disbelief enough to enjoy this, but the performances are simply too wonderful not to. The story is gut wrenching at times in showing much of the horror of World War I; people, horses and even the land pushed beyond their breaking points.
This production is filled with amazing puppeteers, actors, and stage hands all working in wonderful harmony to give the audience one spectacular performance!
I truly enjoyed this!

The entire experience was thrilling and better views of the stage than if we had been in a live audience in person. The only tragedy was that there were only six people in the theater audience. For such a superior production and opportunity we thought this was a shame. Just thinking of all the young people that could have been enriched by this viewing and missed it seemed such a huge waste. We are so grateful that we were able to take advantage of the showing.

It was an absolutely astounding work of art. The puppets were amazing. It was a visual feast.
On top of that, the singing was also beautiful.
The depiction of the story in such a creative way was wonderful.
Besides all of that, there was the tale itself of love between a horse and a young man and then the possibility of both sides of a conflict working together for a common good. Wow!
If you were standing, it would bring you to your knees. If you were sitting it would move you to tears.
