NEW YORK — “Harry, there’s never a perfect answer in this messy, emotional world,” says the deceased Dumbledore, his portrait talking from the stage. “Perfection is beyond the reach of humankind, beyond the reach of magic. In every shining moment of happiness is that drop of poison: the knowledge that pain will come again.”Yes, dear reader, it surely will. Better, then, to heed Professor Dumbledore and head to the theater.As based on a story by J.K. Rowling, Jack Thorne and John Tiffany, written by Thorne and directed by Tiffany with organic, still-magical movement by Steven Hoggett, “Harry Potter and the Cursed Child” opened Sunday night inside Broadway’s gorgeously renovated Lyric Theatre, the second production of a peerless international rollout. It is, at once, a feast of epic theatricality in celebration of the imagination; an immersive coda to the most powerful literary brand of a generation; and a must-see, totally … [Read more...] about ‘Harry Potter and the Cursed Child’ opens on Broadway, the J.K.

NEW YORK — “Interveno ticketmasterus!” I’m wondering if the wizarding world could come up with a charm that might give desperate Muggles a leg up on performance availability. Because an incantation may be the only way to scare up tickets to “Harry Potter and the Cursed Child,” now that it has officially opened on Broadway and Potterholics are going to be hitting the ticket-buying website refresh button so often they’ll be in danger of breaking keyboards and fingers. This elaborate two-part, 5½ -hour stage sequel to J.K Rowling’s canonical series is like a witchy worship service for the countless consumers of every magical segue and subplot of the seven books and eight Harry Potter movies from which it draws inspiration. During the full day of performances I attended in the Lyric Theatre — refurbished as part of the production’s reported $68 million, pre-opening budget — roars and applause broke out for the … [Read more...] about The charms of Harry Potter work on Broadway — but read the books first
On Saturday night, I lucked into a ticket for the second half of the new, hot Broadway show: “Harry Potter and the Cursed Child,” Parts One and Two, a sequel to the magic school series phenomenon, now in previews at The Lyric Theatre. You can see the two parts separately or on the same day, adding up to some five hours of thespian adventure. Though I missed the first part, I was able to quickly orient myself because I had devoured the special “rehearsal script” shortly after it was published in 2016. I thought that preparation plus years of Talmudic devotion to the seven original books, affiliated movies and fanfiction put me in a high percentile for Harry Potter-fandom among the theatergoers. I was wrong. Prepare for the Potter superfans to establish a long and excited residence on 43rd Street. By way of example, here is how the waning minutes of intermission played out in the balcony during Saturday’s performance of Part 2. A haggard usher, who … [Read more...] about I thought I would be the biggest Harry Potter fan in the theater. I was wrong.
