LEFT THE THEATRE SPEECHLESS!
If like me, you're worried the magic won't match what you see on the big screen, and your vision of Hogwarts will be torn away - then you've nothing to fear. It makes you believe in magic just that touch more. The illusions you witness, the use of special effects and the story leads you to feel even more involved in Harry Potters world than ever before. It's a triumphant piece of theatre, and if I could use a time turner to go back and watch it again, I would!

PUTTING THE MAGIC BACK ONTO BROADWAY!
This show is everything Broadway should be, magical, daring and all-round brilliant! From the acting to the technical wizardry I was bowled over by every element of the production. This is a great night out for every one, even if you're not a Potterhead, I hope I can see it again and again!

Just got back from the second part. Absolutely frickin' wonderful. My husband wasn't a fan of the play when he read it and I hadn't read the play---we both deeply enjoyed it in person. The special effects were amazing. It was Harry Potter with magic + Cirque de Soleil style movements. Just awesome.

FABULOUS FABULOUS FABULOUS!!
Caught the opening last night and it was, as noted in my review title, Fabulous! The acting was top-shelf all the way. The stage direction, lighting and sound engineers were the best! Creative development of the plot through stage props was off the chart--especially the use of suitcases which functioned as classroom desks and tombstones, the great ways the staircases were used and moved really underscored the gothic feel of the period. We are so lucky to have this show in San Francisco! Kudos to all involved!

First of all I am a fan off all things Harry Potter. I am campaigning to have our grandchildren enroll in Hogwarts. What., You say it’s not real? Hogwash! “Cursed Child part I and II was/is a magical experience not to be missed. The scenery, the characters, the special effects - no green screens here! The theater was transformed, down to the carpeting. The only criticism is that there was no utter beer offered at the concessions. I won’t say more because... well because it’s like going on a fabulous vacation and trying to tell a friend about it on your return: if you don’t see it yourself it’s impossible to imagine. You must be there. Put a spell on yourself and... goooooooo......

magical ENTHRALLING Incredible
Never have I walked out of a theatre feeling more elated, exhausted and entertained... it really is that good!
Were it not for the fact us Muggles know magic is not real, Jack Thorne, JKR and John Tiffany could have fooled me, because what they have created in this thrilling theatrical marvel is truly enchanting. Never have I walked out of a theatre feeling moreRead full review
