War Horse is based on a children's book by Michael Morpurgo
The hit West End play War Horse is to transfer to Broadway next year.
The adaptation of Michael Morpurgo's book about a horse caught up in World War I will run at New York's Lincoln Center from 17 March 2011.
First seen at the National in 2007, War Horse is currently booking at the New London Theatre until February 2011.
Steven Spielberg has reportedly bought the film rights to the play, which uses life-size puppets to bring the titular animal to life.
War Horse is up for a Laurence Olivier award in March after being shortlisted for an audience award for most popular play.
The Queen, Prince Philip and Prince William are among the many who have seen the show, produced in collaboration with the Handspring Puppet Company.
In other transfer news, it has been announced that a London production of the musical Sweet Charity will move to the West End next month.
Starring Tamsin Outhwaite in the role Shirley MacLaine played in the 1969 film, it will run at the Theatre Royal Haymarket from 23 April after completing its sold-out run at the Menier Chocolate Factory in south London.
