IMPRESSIVE: JOEY THE WAR HORSE GALLOPS INTO TOWN. TRUDY HAINES IS 87 & STILL WORKING
WAR HORSE, winner of five 2011
Tony Awards, opened for the first time in
Philadelphia on Nov. 20!
Joey and Nick LeMedica (R) from Newark, De. He’s excited to be in town not only for you to see War Horse, but he gets to see his family for Thanksgiving.
Based on the epic
novel, the powerful story was also the inspiration for Steven
Spielberg’s Oscar-nominated motion picture. A remarkable tale of courage, loyalty and
friendship, WAR HORSE is filled with stirring music & songs, and told with
some of the most innovative stagecraft of our time. At its heart are astonishing
life-sized puppets created by South Africa’s Handspring Puppet Company, bringing
to life breathing, galloping, charging horses strong enough for men to ride. WAR
HORSE is the winner of five 2011 Tony Awards, including Best
I don’t know which is more excited, seeing Joey rise to the occasion, or seeing legendary Trudy Haines in action working a video camera at age 86. Happy Birthday to her on Friday when she is 87. Born November 23, 1926
and Locust streets, Philadelphia, www.kimmelcenter.org, 215-893-1999).
