War Horse breaks records in Oz

Australia’s production of War Horse has just broken some more records, taking the lead from its many counterparts across the globe! The award-winning show, which opened at Arts Centre Melbourne on New Year’s Eve, has now taken the largest advance sales ever at the venue.

War Horse is truly a global phenomenon. This newly mounted co-production between The National Theatre of Great Britain and Global Creatures marks the most recent opening of the show, following on from versions that are still playing to packed houses in London, New York, Toronto and Berlin. Following its run in Melbourne, this production will tour to Sydney, Brisbane and on to New Zealand in 2013, ensuring that the greatest amount of people possible can experience one of the most acclaimed plays in recent years.

As you would expect, press coverage of the play’s arrival has been feverish and hugely expectant, with the Herald Sun and Time Out both featuring the show’s opening as a huge cultural event.

We can’t wait for even more people to join the over two million people that have already experienced War Horse!
