Harry Potter and the Cursed Child Review *NO SPOILERS*

Harry Potter and the Cursed Child | bluchickenninja.com

It’s difficult talking about Cursed Child because I really really don’t want to give away any spoilers and it’s hard to talk about it without giving away anything. So I think I will have to split this into three parts. This is the non spoiler part, then there will be a part for the story spoilers and another for play spoilers. That way people who have read the book but not seen the play can see what I thought of the story without getting any spoilers for the play. I should also point out I am reviewing the story as I saw it in the play, I haven’t actually read the book yet and at this point don’t think I could do a proper review of the book because I saw the play.

So the play, it was fantastic. I really don’t know what else I can say apart from that. If you’re a Potter fan and not sure about going to see the play just do it. You won’t regret it. That is if you can actually get seats. I should point out we had the £15 seats and they really weren’t that great. My sister and I were pretty lucky that we were sat close to the front of the balcony but you still didn’t get a great view. And you basically had no space to move. If you can afford better seats definitely get them.

But the story was good, the music was incredible, the actors were fantastic. Noma Dumezweni was brilliant as Hermione, the guy who played Ron was so good he basically was Ron. Like he was so good you could actually believe he was related to the guy who played Arthur Weasley in the movies. The special effects were amazing. To the point you would think they were doing actual magic. The whole thing was brilliant.

I realise this isn’t much of a review but I really don’t want to give away anything. Just go see the play. Or read the book. I can’t say which is better because I saw the play first and haven’t read the book yet (though I would still say see the play first if you can). But this is the sort of story you really need to go into not knowing what is going to happen. Seriously, there is a reason they hand out little #keepthesecrets pin badges as you leave the theatre.

Thanks for reading.

    God I wish I could afford the trip to go see it. The whole time I read the book I couldn’t stop thinking about how great it probably looked on stage.

      It’s something thats definitely worth seeing in the format it was originally written for. But I have heard rumors that it might be moving to Broadway so maybe you could see it?

        Oh I soooo hope that’s true. NYC is doable for me given some planning. London, as much as I wish and hope and want, is sadly not!
