It’s been very hard for me to practice restraint and not book a spontaneous trip across the pond to see Harry Potter and the Cursed Child in London’s West End. Now, being within hours of the stage play’s release (and not to mention the pound’s recent fall against the dollar), I imagine things are only going to become more difficult.
For at midnight tonight, we will have a new story within the wizarding world of Harry Potter. It won’t be in a format we’re used to; the release will be a script of the stage play, not a novelization. And while we might be missing the stage, and costumes, and lighting, and actors, I have no doubt that the story will still retain it’s magic. Here’s why.
