NEW YORK (AP) — The play "War Horse" is certainly living up to its name: The touching love story between a boy and his horse has become a reliable, dependable draw wherever it goes. Now it's going somewhere new: digital.
Some 300,000 people across the county have already bought tickets to see "War Horse" Thursday night as Fathom Events, National Theatre Live and BY Experience team up for a special live broadcast of the show from London's West End.
More than 300 movie theaters across America will show the broadcast, just the latest in a wave of theatrical shows that are being beamed to screens as producers seize on technological improvements and a willingness to let live shows be recorded.
