NEW YORK (AP) - The Tony Award-winning play “War Horse” is jumping off its saddle in New York.

Producers said Tuesday that the play about horses sent to the battlefields during World War I will play its final performance at Lincoln Center on Jan. 6. When it closes, it will have played some 750 shows.

Hailed as a beautiful mashup of puppetry and pathos, “War Horse” premiered at the National Theatre in London in 2007. It moved to the West End in March 2009, where it continues to play.

It came to Broadway and opened at Lincoln Center Theater in March 2011, winning five Tonys, including best play. A U.S. tour kicked off in Los Angeles this June and will travel to 30 U.S. cities.
