This August, a few freelancers took advantage of a special opportunity to see the critically acclaimed, Tony Award winning play War Horse on Broadway at the Lincoln Center Theater. Check out their creative responses, which include reviews and artwork inspired by the play, right here!
”For me, War Horse seems to be a convergence of more than just one type of art, transcending the idea of a traditional play to instead become more of an experience in multiple art forms.” – Sara Schuster
“A refreshing new look at the Great War through the eyes of innocents, War Horse is a promise for peace.” – Tiffany Tsai
“The puppeteers were the most impressive part of the production, without a doubt. They worked in a syncopated way in order to manipulate the life-sized horses, which is what made the production really stand out to me.” – Ilaria Lampson
“War Horse– a striking play about the peaks and trenches of life during World War I and the legend of young English soldier Albert Narracott– is an authentic and moving performance. Through a combination of song, dance-like choreography, and stunning puppetry, viewers see Albert’s relationship with his horse, Joey.” -Hannah Frishberg
“Friendship comes in many forms. How far would you go to save someone you love? War Horse proves that near or far, the bond between friends can never be severed. This emotionally-moving theatrical experience successfully captures the true beauty of friendship through the heartwarming tale of a boy’s tenacious loyalty toward his beloved horse.” -Aglaia Ho
