In 2007, a friend from London told me about the “most amazing show ever” at the National Theatre of Great Britain. The show was War Horse, the story of a horse named Joey, the boy who raised him and the bond they form that transcends the horrendous combat of World War I.
It’s hard to imagine a play about horses onstage, but War Horse galloped to Broadway in 2011 and won five Tony Awards, including best play.
