If I had a lot of money ...

Robert Emms plays Albert, a naive country boy who follows his beloved horse, Joey,
to the battlefields of World War I. Based on a children's book
by Michael Morpurgo, the play chronicles the horrors of war
as seen through a horse's eyes.

I'd buy tickets, and I'd go to London, and I'd see this show. I'd take friends. It's supposed to come to New York next summer, and that's a lot closer ...

"Eight million horses died during the first World War," says puppeteer Matthew Burgess. "And that shouldn't be forgotten."

If War Horse has anything to do with it, London audiences — and starting next March, their counterparts in New York — will remember it for a long time to come.
