You might be thinking that this is just another play capitalizing on the success of a epic saga of magic, friendship, and adolescence. But, in this case, you couldn’t be farther from the truth. Unlike musicals, which commit their storyline to the stage with little imagination, Rowling, Tiffany and Thorne have went back to the roots of what made the books the huge success they are in the first place – a fairytale spine and psychodrama all cloaked in some incredibly detailed world-building – and they’ve used these findings to craft a new story. And they make it magical. Tiffany doesn’t hold back as his lavish production unfolds, gifting us with acrobatic wand battles, polyjuice transformations, flying Dementors, and a stunt that involves water that has everyone flabergasted. Don’t miss the opportunity to experience all of this yourself on Wednesday 13th May 2020.
