Harry Potter and the Cursed Child Reviews
Harry Potter and the Cursed Child premiered this Sunday and the reviews are in!
- “Harry Potter and the Cursed Child seizes the stage by divine right. Like it belongs there. Like it doesn’t want to leave. It’s more than the best new play of the season. It’s some kind of miracle” Rolling Stone
- “The show’s ingenious theatricality can make audiences believe that magic is real.” Slate
- “anyone still ready to dismiss Harry Potter and the Cursed Child as a cynical brand extension, or a theme-park ride on stage, clearly hasn’t experienced the thrilling theatricality, the pulse-pounding storytelling vitality and the unexpected emotional richness of this unmissable two-part production” The Hollywood Reporter
- “We love the swirling black cloaks and conical hats of the witches and wizards, the shroud-like garments of the Dementors and the marvels of time travel. But most of all, we love seeing theater that shows us the true magic of great storytelling.” Variety
- “Cursed Child is a marvel, a shape-shifting play that effortlessly incorporates music and choreographed movement, classic storytelling and fresh perspectives, a look that incorporates World War II-era Britain and Victorian spiritualism with Hollywood’s latest flash.” Deadline
- “One of the most touching parts of the show was watching the intense reaction of the audience to their favorite characters. Our fellow theater-goers burst into rapturous applause at the appearance of Harry, and Hagrid, and Hermione (and a few others I won’t reveal).” The Daily Beast
