Arts preview: Saddle up for War Horse, a masterful piece of theater

Jackie Mantey, Columbus Alive

If you enjoyed Steven Spielberg's big screen adaption of Michael Morpurgo's novel "War Horse," then saddle up for this masterful theater piece based on the same book.

The heroic tale of a horse's journey through WWI is epic enough, but the stirringly lifelike puppet horses represent some of the most innovative stagecraft of our generation. Tickets to the Columbus premiere start at $35.
