The fifth of January 2019 I went to see Harry Potter and the Cursed Child. It was an amazing experience that I will never forget. As soon as my parents told me that we were going to London, I realized that I could go and watch it. They bought the tickets and I was so happy and excited that I even bought the book for the play.
The day finally came, and when we finally got inside the theatre…my heart started beating so fast, I was so excited and impressed by how beautiful the theatre was. It was huge! It had many food stands and it even had a coffee house. It felt amazing to be inside this remarkable place. My seats were in the middle so it wasn’t very close nor too far away. As soon as the play began, I just felt so privileged to be watching this masterpiece. The actors were not similar to the ones in the movies or books but it showed that it doesn’t matter how you look, what matters is how well you can perform. This wasn’t like any other play, it had special effects and much more.
There are two parts in this play, and if after the first part you think it can’t get better, you are wrong because the second part is even better than the first. This play is set 19 years after the events of the last book, (Harry Potter is now 36 years old) and it is about Harry’s son Albus Severus Potter, who feels left out because on his first day at Hogwarts he was sorted into Slytherin and not into Gryffindor, like the rest of his family. He makes a friend named Scorpion, who is Draco Malfoy’s son (Harry Potter’s “enemy”) and is also in Slytherin, but Harry thinks that he might be a bad influence on his son. This story has mystery and includes many plot twists. (Don’t watch it if you have not read the books or seen all of the movies of the Harry Potter series.)
I really recommend this play, it is really well performed. After this play, you will want to learn more and more about the Harry Potter universe. It is really intriguing and mysterious. If you’re a Potterhead, you can’t miss this opportunity. The only thing that would make it better would be to make it a musical. Overall, I give five stars out of five to this fabulous play.
Remember: not everything is the way it seems…
