Harry Potter comes to Broadway all grown up in this two-part story that picks up with Harry, Ginny, Ron, and Hermoine nineteen years after the events of the final book. Winner of six Tony Awards, including Best Play. More…
It was always difficult being Harry Potter and it isn’t much easier now that he is an overworked employee of the Ministry of Magic, a husband and father of three school-age children. While Harry grapples with a past that refuses to stay where it belongs, his youngest son Albus must struggle with the weight of a family legacy he never wanted. As past and present fuse ominously, both father and son learn the uncomfortable truth: sometimes, darkness comes from unexpected places. Based on an original new story by J.K. Rowling, 'Harry Potter and the Cursed Child' is one play presented in two parts. Both parts are intended to be seen in order on the same day (matinee and evening) or on two consecutive evenings.
See it if If you are a Potter groupie, you will probably feel compelled to see this overlong episode, but it is not very good theater.
Don't see it if You have to enter your credit card before you find out which bad seats you are buying. It is quite a scam. I recommend you skip it.
See it if you love everything harry potter & don't mind seeing an overly-busy, over-miked, flashy, superficial show performed in a cavernous theater.
Don't see it if you're hoping for anything resembling convincing human interactions and honest performances.
See it if If you are a kid who loves magic or an adult who would prefer visual effects over good acting. Great staging, OK music, magic all around
Don't see it if I spent over $500 for two tickets for 2 parts, and fell asleep at least a few times (and I love HP!). Bad acting, boring plot, cheap thrills
See it if you want to see technical display in a cynical exercise meant to relieve theater-going families of a week's salary.
Don't see it if you are interested in complex, moving characters and stories.
See it if You haven’t seen harry potter (actually, just don’t see it, it’s horrible writing.)
Don't see it if You’re paying for this and enjoy good writing.
See it if you're a big HP fan, just want to be able to say you've seen it, and/or you have a lot of time and money to throw around.
Don't see it if You care about good writing or a story that is interesting/makes sense.
See it if If you are a hardcore fan of Harry Potter, if you enjoy special effects, and if you have extra 6 hours
Don't see it if You are looking for acting, rather than creaming and commotion on stage.The plot is overwhelming, confusing, with major abuse of time travel
See it if You want to spend $400+ for a fantastic two-night nap.
Don't see it if you are expecting a wonderful world of wizardry because you will not see that; often boring and very predictable.
See it if You have time and money to loose.
Don't see it if Boring....Unnecessary long and expensive, absence of magic and music that is expected, not meet the expectations.
