Now Playing Onstage in Madison - Week of 6/01/2014War Horse in Broadway" border="0" height="100" width="100" align="right"> WAR HORSE
Overture Center for the Arts
6/10-6/14/2014
"A heart-warming tale of loyalty and friendship, and winner of FIVE 2011 Tony Awards®, War Horse tells the story of young Albert and his beloved horse Joey. When Joey is sold to the cavalry and shipped from England to France, he is 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. Based on the beloved novel by Michael Morpurgo, this powerfully moving and imaginative drama, filled with stirring music and songs, is a show of phenomenal inventiveness that is currently playing to packed houses in London and around the world. At its heart are astonishing life-sized puppets created by South Africa's Handspring Puppet Company, that bring to life breathing, galloping, charging horses strong enough for men to ride.

Bartell Theater
6/6-6/14/2014
What makes a show "flop" on Broadway? Is it the composer? Works by beloved composers like Stephen Sondheim, Rodgers and Hammerstein, Andrew Lloyd Weber, Frank Loesser, Cy Coleman, John Kander and Fred Ebb, Harold Arlen, Claude Michael Schonberg and Alain Boublil, Stephen Schwartz, Jerry Herman and many more have failed on Broadway. Could it be the lack of a star? Shows that featured legendary stars like Angela Lansbury, Carol Channing, Lucille Ball, Robert Preston, Yul Brynner, Betty Buckley, Anthony Perkins, Christine Baranski and Nathan Lane have died a painful death on the Great White Way. Perhaps it's an unknown name? Musicals based off of popular source materials such as Breakfast at Tiffany's, Dracula, Alice in Wonderland, Doonesbury, A Doll's Life, Gone With the Wind, Elmer Gantry, Cyrano De Bergerac, Goldilocks, and, of course, Carrie, have all been financial, creative or all around failures.

Future productions of WAR HORSE are planned for Australia, Berlin and South Africa, as well as a UK Tour.
