Wordless Wednesday: Joey the WarHorse
HAVE YOU HEARD ABOUT THE PLAY, “WARHORSE” COMING TO THE FOX THEATRE IN SEPTEMBER? We got a special preview of the puppet — and I don’t mean a sock puppet — which is a marvelous piece of engineering. The three men it takes to make this puppet seem alive are nothing short of artists. They have even learned to breathe as a horse would.
I wanted to share the way in which Joey the WarHorse was constructed. There are multiple Joeys performing with the various show groups and each one takes considerable craftsmanship to create. I found it all fascinating. My William recorded the whole preview on his mp3 player and has revisited it several times since to learn more. I’ll have more info. about the upcoming show tomorrow.
