More on War Horse (CBS Sunday Morning and Meet the Puppeteers!)

Not so long ago, we told you about those crazy puppets from War Horse - a Broadway Production now playing at the Lincoln Center. It seems our fascination is being shared by the rest of the city as well. 

Not only is the production (imported fresh from London's West End) getting favorable early reviews, an excellent piece was featured on CBS Sunday Morning on April 10th. The segment really illustrates both what a moving story War Horse is and how sensations those custom life-size horse puppets are. Pretty amazing stuff.

This week, you can get up close with "Warhorse: The Puppeteers Speak" -Tuesday, April 12th at 6:30 PM as Puppeteers Basil Jones and Adrian Kohler discuss their craft as a medium of communication with moderator Yvette Christiansë. They will discuss puppetry as a medium of communication and advocacy. The event is Free at The John Tishman Auditorium at the New School on 12th Street between 5th and 6th Avenue. 

If you see the production, keep in mind that even Puppet Horses enjoy a nice sugar cube as a treat.
