In this undated file photo released by HarperCollins, British author Michael Morpurgo, author of "War Horse," is shown. Morpurgo, who wrote the book the Tony Award-winning play is based on, was part of more than a dozen actors watching the auctioning-off of the horse Joey at the top of the show in New York. The author, who made a similar appearance in the London production of "War Horse" and is an extra in Steven Spielberg's movie version, didn't speak any dialogue and didn't appear again until the curtain call a few hours later.
