War Horse, the acclaimed and Tony-nominated play that uses life-size horse puppets, is launching a national tour in Feburary, and one of the stops includes Dallas. The show will come to the AT&T Performing Arts Center's Winspear Opera House in the 2012-2013 season, as part of the Lexus Broadway Series.
A quote from the ATTPAC press release:
"We are thrilled to be able present War Horse on its first national tour,” said Doug Curtis, interim CEO of the AT&T Performing Arts Center. “This show has generated more excitement and discussion than any I can recall in a long time. War Horse represents the kind of artistic productions we are committed to bringing to our audiences both now and in the future."
Tickets for ATTPAC's 2011-12 season have just gone on sale, so don't expect to hear much more about War Horse and ticket sales until early 2012. In the mean time, here's a video to keep you sated.
