There’s magic in every moment at Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, the most awarded play in history and “one of the most defining pop culture events of the decade” (Forbes). And now, the 8th Harry Potter story is bringing the magic back to London’s West End from 14 October.
19 years after Harry, Ron, and Hermione saved the wizarding world, they’re back on a most extraordinary new adventure – this time, joined by a brave new generation that has only just arrived at the legendary Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. Prepare for spectacular spells, a mind-blowing race through time, and an epic battle to stop mysterious forces, all while the future hangs in the balance.
This one-of-a-kind theatrical experience is packed with “thrilling theatricality and pulse-pounding storytelling” (The Hollywood Reporter). It will leave you “audibly wowed, cheering and gasping” (The Telegraph), as “visions of pure enchantment send shivers down your spine” (Rolling Stone). “It is out of this world, it’s magic, it’s a hit” (The Times).
Review of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child
To sum up, I have been reviewing for a couple of years and seen just under 400 shows in that time and I can honestly say Harry Potter and the Cursed Child Parts 1 and 2 is the best thing I have seen on stage in all that time. The story is brilliant, the staging and acting superb and the entire experience is awesome from start to finish. While I’ve been writing this, I’ve been telling everyone around me to get their tickets booked so they too can experience this breathtaking, stupendous and mind-blowing production that will surely be dominating the London stage for years to come. My one regret is that we can only give a maximum of five stars to a show, this is one worthy of an entire constellation.
