So I Read Harry Potter and the Cursed Child

My brief and informal goodreads review:

I wasn’t sure at first if I even wanted to read this not being a fan fiction reader, but was encouraged to do so and am glad I did. That said, this is clearly in that realm as it requires a relatively strong background in Harry Potter lore to make sense of it all. So much revisits pieces of the earlier books, amplifies themes, characters, and possibilities. I found that great fun (especially after having recently spent a pleasurable day at Orlando’s Harry Potter World).

I also am a regular theatergoer and so enjoyed reading the script and imagining the staging. I’m guessing it will eventually end up on Broadway and I will then have a chance to see it.

  1. I am on vacation with my college age daughters and their two friends and we’ve been doing a dramatic reading of The Cursed Child. They were all steeped in this world as children, and it is so fun to watch them dive back in and catch all the allusions (which I don’t catch) and make predictions. Love that Malfoy’s son, Scorpius, is a sympathetic character.
