To describe War Horse as awesome is to regret the word's devaluation as praise for a good burger or a pretty haircut. This awe-inspiring both as a blast of pure theatrical imagination and as a deep gut-kick about lost innocence in war...The creatures created by the Handspring Puppet Company of South Africa are likely to feel more real -- and more quietly eloquent -- than a lot of people we think we know in plays...All [the] realistic horror -- and real magic -- is told with an exquisite minimum of scenery, little more than people power, a turntable and films projected on a ragged plank hanging above the semicircle stage.

- Linda Winer, Newsday
For two and a half hours I sat enthralled by War Horse, taken completely out of myself and the petty concerns of my life. Gloriously theatrical and almost unbearably moving, this stirring testimonial to the power of honest sentiment is a never-to-be-forgotten theatrical experience...Directors Marianne Elliott and Tom Morris marshal their forces with limitless invention...But none of this immense creativity would have the desired effect without the script and performances to realize it. Fortunately, Nick Stafford's canny adaptation of Michael Morpurgo's fine children's novel is top-drawer. 

- Erik Haagensen, Backstage
A galloping triumph. War Horse is very much a play but it manages to evoke dual virtues of film: intimacy and action on an epic scale. That this drama achieves both simultaneously is a testament to the inspired stagecraft and directorial genius behind its creation...Directors Marianne Elliott and Tom Morris employ cinematic effects, complete with soundtrack in a highly theatrical style...While it's all beautifully acted by an American company, the true stars of this production are the animals...It wasn't until after heading home that I stopped to think that I had just cried over a horse that was actually made up of several props held together by visible handlers. This is the power and magic of great theater.
