"Family Party: Parents and two kids (boys 7 & 10)"
"We took the kids (boys 7 & 10) and all enjoyed it immensely. The New London Theatre is just off Covent Garden so easy for a pre-show meal or post-show drinks. Initially you notice the manual operation of the models and the show seems a little bit basic, but soon you only notice how well the actors mimic the movements and mannerisms of real horses. The play diverges from both the book and film, although this doesn`t detract in any way, just giving it a slightly different story-line, although in essence the story stays the unchanged. Our seats were up in the gods on the right hand side, but no seat in the theatre gives a poor view so seating wherever is adequate, and as with all theatre`s... order interval drinks prior to the show. In summary, although the actors give an excellent performance, they are outshone by the puppetry throughout the show, which is suitable for all but very young children. We thoroughly enjoyed the entire experience and would recommend unreservedly."
