Absorbing, Clever, Exquisite, Masterful, Life-size puppetry

See it if you'd like one of the best dramatic puppetry shows ever, besides for the rousing tale of one man's love for his horse. Also fabulous acting.

Don't see it if This includes some violence and loud explosions apropos of the setting during WWI. It could scare little kids.

Exquisite, Great staging, Intelligent, Must see, Riveting

See it if you want the most exquisitely staged presentation of a very difficult subject. I was sobbing by intermission.

Don't see it if tough emotional theatre is too much for you or the soul of an animal can't touch you.

Absorbing, Clever, Ambitious, Exquisite, Great acting

See it if you want to be floored by incredible puppetry and a supremely moving story, but be warned: it's dark. No bad seat in the house.

Don't see it if you don't want to think at a show. You want something upbeat and comedic. You don't like seeing scenes depicting war.
