Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is like going to Disneyland for the first time, only to find that your most coveted ride, The Tower of Terror is down for repairs. You still enjoy the sights, sounds, food, and the characters that make Disneyland special, but you still are missing that one thrill that will complete your experience.
Reading and seeing a play are two different experiences. You miss the life the actors bring to the play and magicalness of the sets and costumes. While the plot may have some mysterious plot holes, I would never turn down the chance to see this on West End.
Not so spoilery thoughts:
-Albus/Scorpius are totally a thing. I don’t care if they go after other people, I do believe they are in denial. At least that’s how it read.
-Ron. He’s probably the most changed out of the golden trio. He helps run the Weasley’s Wizard Wheezes shop. Did not see that coming.
-James Potter the second is essentially James Potter the first.
-Lily the second is adorable.
-McGonagall sass is strong.
-Albus’s angst is a bit here and there. I wanted some more depth, besides his excuse of I’m tired of being Harry Potter’s son.
– That plot twist is a bit eye blinking inducing. I have questions about it, like the logistics and the canon probability of it, because I honestly don’t think it would have happened, even though it was written to have happened.
I give this .
