Critics review Harry Potter and the Cursed Child and give it five stars praising the production.

It’s time! It’s finally here. After a whole year after it’s announcement and two months’ worth of previews and soft openings, the production of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child finally opened at the West End’s Palace Theater.

Author J.K. Rowling, who co-wrote the play and also gave feedback on the production asked the Harry Potter fans who had already seen the preview to keep the secret.

To keep it under covers for the sake of other fans and let them have the experience for themselves. So while the lucky few who had gotten the chance to see the play kept their lips closed, many were looking to the critics to guide them to see the play or not. 

On the official opening of the play, the production has managed not only to enchant all the critics but also earned five star reviews from most if not every critic.

The play is divided into two parts that span over five hours. Playwright Jack Thorne along with J.K. Rowling have written the play from the nineteen years later perspective where the last book in the series left off. John Tiffany directed the play for stage and he had been praised by all critics for wonderful direction. 

The first part of the play has been praised for the sturdy visual effects, the motion of the story and the comedic relief that is in abundance in the first part of the play.

Critics have noted that the play is full of quirks and notions that will be recognized and loved by the most devoted Potter fans. They will absolutely love the play.

Furthermore, John Tiffany’s direction makes it an enjoyable play for all the audience. The story has also been in contrast to what has been depicted in the books and the movies.

Many critics claim that the play will only work on stage for its story, its riveting plot and it’s superb acting. The stars of the play including Sam Clemmett as Harry's son Albus, Anthony Boyle as his friend Scorpius Malfoy, and the adult Harry played by Jamie Parker, Hermione  played by Noma Dumezweni and Ron played Paul Thornley have all been praised for their certain format of characterization for the stage. 

While praising the play, many critics are also calling the production an evolution for the theater. The play accredited for being formed completely for stage, has been praised for it’s content and performance. Many critics believe that the play will bring the public back to the theater.
