    Default War Horse is broadway bound!

    War Horse is broadway bound! I am passionate about the theater and it is the one play I have been desperate to see, but since I live in NA, it's a bit impractical!

    I've posted the BBC article with a photo and a video clip. If you haven't ever seen the video trailer for the play, it's well worth looking at.

    I will defintely fly to NY to see it. Any other theater lovers out there as thrilled as I am about this news?!

    The video got me all sappy, too.

    Does anyone know if it'll go on tour?

    WAR HORSE is scheduled to begin performances at the Vivian
    Beaumont Theater on Thursday, March 17, 2011 with an opening night scheduled for Thursday, April 14,
    2011.

    That's from the Lincoln Center announcement. But I haven't been to the theatere in the US in years. How come there are performances before opening night? Are they like practice?

    And when do tickets usually go on sale for such things?

    Those are excellent questions. Yes, these are preview performances and are customary before a big opening. These previews give the actors the opportunity to perform the play in front of an audience and the production company the chance to work out any bugs before the media review the play. the media will attend on the official opening night.

    Often it is easier to get tickets to preview performances, but I think in the case of War Horse, because of the advance word-of-mouth, even the previews will be sold out!

    They'll probably go on sale toward the end of 2010.

    Barbara F, will you take on the mission of keeping track of ticket sales? I don't even know how to start.

    But, shhh. Don't tell anyone else. We want to make sure we get ours before they sell out.

    Will it play in DC at some time? And does it have a good ending, is it child friendly to what age?
