News   PHOTO CALL: War Horse's "Joey" and "Topthorn" Open the Lincoln Center Lawn
The Laurie M. Tisch Illumination Lawn at Lincoln Center officially opened for the season on May 10. The larger than life horse puppets Joey and Topthorn from Tony-nominated play War Horse were on hand to cut the ribbon.

The horses were joined on the lawn by young dancers from the School of American Ballet currently rehearsing Jerome Robbins' Circus Polka for SAB's June Workshop Performances at the Peter Jay Sharp Theatre.

Here's a look at the ribbon cutting:


Joey and Topthorn are operated by three puppeteers apiece.

War Horse features series of life-sized equestrian puppets, which have the capability of strikingly lifelike movement. Each evocative creature (created by Handspring Puppet Company) is manipulated by an on-stage crew of three puppeteers who give life to a horse named Joey, as he grows from a skittish foal into a full-grown horse.
