Harry Potter and The Cursed Child, Palace Theatre - ★★★★★ - Until August 2, 2020


The Harry Potter charm continues with this thoroughly enjoyable theatrical experience! The two parts that form the play make for a long day in the theatre, but for Potter fans and others it is more than worth it. J.K. Rowling’s new story shows Harry as a parent, facing all the challenges that entails, and with her usual magic, Rowling blends the magical world with real feelings and common experiences to create an insightful and delightful piece of theatre. 
The courage to develop characters rather than relying on the repetition of a tried and true formula makes this work worthy of the record-breaking nine Olivier awards that it won, including best play and best director. Finally, an original piece of theatre appealing to children and to the child in all of us.
