— Karen D’Souza. Innocence and war. Critics have been stampeding to praise “War Horse,” the National Theatre of Great Britain’s World War I epic. Winner of six Tony Awards, including best play, this is the heart-melting tale of a little boy who follows his beloved horse into battle. Young Albert and his horse, Joey, find themselves lost amid the trenches, a no man’s land of smoke and blood. Life-size puppets capture the magic of galloping steeds in this historical spectacle based on Michael Morpurgo’s novel, which has also been made into a movie by Steven Spielberg. One of the most highly anticipated productions of the year, “War Horse” charges into San Francisco’s Curran Theatre Aug. 1-Sept. 9 as part of SHN’s Best of Broadway series. Tickets are $35-$100 (subject to change) at www.shnsf.com.
