“The Cursed Child’s wizardry is plucky, thrilling, and well-proportioned.” says Vanity Fair. Do you wander how such a magical saga could be re-created live? Well, through the show’s stagecraft – a ceaseless spell of practical magic, both simple and intricate. Tiffany spares no indulgence as his extravagant production unfolds, stunning us with acrobatic wand battles, polyjuice transformations, flying Dementors, and a stunt involving water that has everyone flabergasted. But the play isn’t “showing off” to show off. Tiffany smartly contextualizes the spectacle, finding the answer as to how to make a live Harry Potter show feel magical in a way that’s unique to the theater. The “what are they going to do next, and how are they going to do it” of it all becomes an integral part of the experience, as much of an adventure as the story itself. Don’t miss the chance to experience all of this yourself on Thursday 4th August 2022.
