Popejoy Presents brings some of the best plays straight from Broadway to town for us to enjoy. And they have done it again. War Horse opened on Tuesday night, and the show was amazing. After seeing the movie, it was hard to picture how they could bring the glory of Joey to the stage. But they did, and it is breathtaking. Through the expert work of puppeteers, Joey comes to life right before your eyes. It is an amazing piece of machinery that you just can't keep your eyes off of, and even though you know it is a puppet, it provokes so much emotion you find tears in your eyes throughout the production. The love that the main characater, Albert, has for his horse just made me want to go home and hug my cat Tedi. And his determined spirit to never give up the fight to find his beloved horse makes you realize there is nothing greater than the love we have in our hearts. This is a must see production.
War Horse runs through Sunday May 4th at Popejoy Hall on the UNM Campus. You can get your tickets today at www.popejoypresents.com or www.unmtickets.com
