"There’s the magic of it all, depicted in visual effects in which even the most jaded audience members, burned out from years of comic-book movies’ eye-popping CGI, will almost certainly find wonder...Thankfully, 'Cursed Child' is a loving depiction of the rest of Potter’s world, a greatest-hits tour of beloved characters, settings and wizarding wonders, largely told through the eyes of two new characters who more than deserve their place in the Rowling canon."

"It's quite a show, as Springsteen delivers two hours and 15 songs worth of memories, and revelations, and—for some—plenty of tears...Die-hards in the audience will recognize passages from his book, and acoustic interpretations that have been part of his live set for years...Dispenses with the exposition in its final stretch, and that’s when things get cosmic...If the tears haven't flowed earlier in the evening, have Kleenex ready for the show's ending, with a breathtaking pair of medleys."
