J.K. Rowling, John Tiffany and Jack Thorne's Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, Parts One and Two, which has been in previews since June 7, opens officially July 30 at London's Palace Theatre, but, in an unusual move, let it be known that they would welcome reviews starting early this week.
A First Look Inside Harry Potter and the Cursed Child
The play, which runs four hours and must be seen over the course of two performances, is presented in two parts. The production stars Jamie Parker as Harry Potter with Noma Dumezwen as Hermione and Paul Thornley as Ron. The story follows the future of the familiar Harry Potter teens, now as adults. “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.”
The critics are filing their reviews. Playbill.com is collecting them for our readers and will continue to update this list as the latest ones come in.
