“Harry Potter and the Cursed Child” is running at the Palace Theatre in London.
“Harry Potter and the Cursed Child” in London seems to be the London equivalent of “Hamilton” on Broadway in NYC: glowing reviews, tremendously theatricality, fine performances, terrific tech team, and sold out forever.
Now all we have to do is wait for the show, which opened Monday, to cross the pond and come here. Maybe, both will run simultaneously here and abroad, drawing young audiences to live theater. What could be better!?
A female president? But, I digress.
