A few months ago Sandra and I went to see the play “Harry Potter and the Cursed Child,” and it was an experience worth telling. We booked it well in advance, as we had always put it off and put it off. Until we decided to stand up and get tickets, well it was Sandra who gave them to me (which I couldn't have been more excited about).
Since 2016, the play based on the book with the same title, written by Jack Thorne, JK Rowling & John Tiffany, has been performed at the Palace Theater.
The writer joined two playwrights and published the work, designed and written to be a play.
The story is set in the same universe, but 19 years later, exactly where the saga of the 7 books of Harry, Ron and Hermione ends.
Harry Potter is Head of the Department of Magical Law Enforcement at the Ministry of Magic, and his son, Albus Potter, a new student at Hogwarts.
When Albus arrives at Hogwarts, he is sorted into Slytherin and fails to live up to his father's legacy, making him resentful of his father. Rowling has referred to the work as "the eighth Harry Potter story."
This work is being performed in several cities around the world: London, New York, Hamburg and Tokyo. Obviously, the most iconic place to see it is the city of London.
We went to see it and the truth is that it surprised us quite a bit. There are many of you who ask us on our tours about this work, which is why we have left you some recommendations:
  • The language of the work is English. Keep in mind that many of the actors and actresses have different accents, they speak very quickly and it is sometimes difficult to understand them.
  • The staging is a 10! The visual effects couldn't be better, we shook every time the dementors came out.
  • The work is divided into two parts; Each one lasts 2 hours and 40 minutes, which is why it sometimes gets tedious, especially in the second part. Both parts have breaks, but they are still quite long. Our recommendation is that you go prepared to spend almost the entire day at the theater.
  • We bought our tickets at www.todaytix.com , but you can also get them on the official website https://uk.harrypottertheplay. com/?gad=1&gclid=CjwKCAjw- eKpBhAbEiwAqFL0mut_ vWMr76m8YAJe4L2niEuSTME6z_pX_ ktXhHFVmAQPk0n6bVW_ rBoCCBwQAvD_BwE , or use our favorite trick (that we tell you about in the tours).
  • To eat you have a thousand alternatives near the theater, it is located in the center (near Picadilly Circus, Covent Garden, Soho) so you will find many types of restaurants around the corner.
We liked it, but it is not our favorite work. At times the script seemed ambiguous and contradictory to the 7 Harry Potter novels, something that many fans have also told us.
We have a tour in which we leave this theater, and we can take a photo under the awning with the famous Harry Potter letters. Well, more than a tour it is a magical experience. This is an Escape City Tour for real wizards and witches, in which, apart from telling you a thousand curiosities and details of the saga, we will visit important and filming sites while, in groups, you solve the tests to be declared winners of the Tournament of Wizards. Would you dare to compete? If so, we leave you the link here to make your reservation:
Thank you Sandra, for those entries, and for making me spend an afternoon full of magic and laughter. The dementors couldn't beat us, we had the wands and spells prepared from home.
