Before Joey the horse was a star in an Oscar-nominated film, he was the magnificent puppet at the center of the lauded Broadway production of War Horse. That show will now travel to the Winspear Opera House this September as part of the Lexus Broadway Series’ 2012-2013 season.
The next season at the Winspear brings a number of touted-musicals to the Dallas stage, including Fela!, which took three Tony’s in 2010, and Anything Goes, the Roundabout Theatre Company production of the Cole Porter musical that won a Tony for best revival. Rounding out the season: John O’Hurley (who you know as J. Peterman from Seinfeld) in Chicago; Jekyll & Hyde starring Constantine Maroulis, the American Idol finalist who snagged a Tony nomination for his performance in Rock of Ages; and Traces, a Cirque du Soleil-esque stage spectacular. Here’s the full release:
