My mom and I bought Broadway in Birmingham season tickets this year. We've seen three amazing musicals -- The Addams Family, Hello Dolly!, and Memphis. The fourth and final show, War Horse, is tonight. It's a powerful World War I drama based on the book by Michael Morpurgo. It was recently adapted for the big screen by Steven Spielberg. The stage play, which features the breathing, galloping, full-scale horses created by South Africa's Handspring Puppet Company, debuted in Great Britain in 2007. It crossed the pond to the United States in 2012. Now, in 2014, it is finally here in Birmingham. I cannot wait to see it.
