Kimmel Center brings Broadway to Philadelphia with WarHorse

The great thing about living so close to a big city like Philadelphia is the wide diversity of opportunities to experience real talent . As my kids get older (and I can get them to sit still), I look forward to taking them to the concerts and Broadway type shows that appear here.

This Fall, the Kimmel Center is kicking off their Broadway series with Tony-awarding winning War Horse which is simply amazing and if you liked the movie, you will love the real life show.

At the Kimmel Center: Tuesday, November 20 – Sunday, December 2


A remarkable tale of courage, loyalty and friendship. England, 1914. As World War One begins, Joey, young Albert’s beloved horse, is sold to the cavalry and shipped from England to France. He’s soon caught up in enemy fire, and fate takes him on an extraordinary journey, serving on both sides before finding himself alone in no man’s land. But Albert cannot forget Joey and, still not old enough to enlist, he embarks on a treacherous mission to find him and bring him home. This powerfully moving and imaginative drama, filled with stirring music and songs, is a show of phenomenal inventiveness. At its heart are astonishing life-sized puppets created by South Africa’s Handspring Puppet Company, who bring breathing, galloping, charging horses to life on the stage.
