War Horse opened in Boston on October 10 for a two-week run. The traveling Broadway production, which originated at the National Theatre a few years ago, is getting all sorts of press. The day before the opening the main characters – the horse Joey, his owner and his puppeteer – went to the Animal Rescue League in Dedham, Massachusetts to have a play date with Celeste, a miniature horse who had been involved in an animal cruelty case earlier in the year. Joey is a well-traveled steed. He has also been to Windsor Castle where he apparently won over the heart of the Queen. The Handspring Puppet Company cofounders Adrian Kohler and Basil Jones, who designed the War Horse puppets, were featured in a long article about their puppets in the Boston Globe.
