'War Horse' to end Broadway run in January 2013

The epic World War I play War Horse – which earned the Tony Award for Best Play in 2011 — will end its Broadway run at Lincoln Center’s Vivian Beaumont Theatre on Jan. 6, 2013.

The play, featuring puppets from South Africa’s Handspring Puppet Company, tells the story of a boy in WWI-era England and the horse he brings up, traveling through historical moments as well as personal triumphs and defeats.

War Horse is theatre at its best: magical, moving, and invigorating,” said producer Bob Boyett in a statement. “I’m so grateful to have been a part of bringing such an inspired and inspiring piece of theatre to New York.”

War Horse will continue its London West End run and its U.S. tour, and productions are planned in 2013 for Berlin, Australia, and the U.K. tour. The 2011 feature film adaptation, directed by Steven Spielberg, won six Oscar nods, including Best Picture.
