HARRY POTTER AND THE CURSED CHILD PARTS ONE AND TWO at the Palace Theatre are a must for any Potter fan and it will run and run and run. It is an incredible achievement after the success of the books and the movies to create the world of Harry Potter in the theatre. We are asked to “keep the secrets” and I will of course respect that as important so that every theatre goer enjoys these plays to the full. In the most general terms I will say that the medium of theatre has allowed the designers to create some incredibly thrilling scenes.

I have to be honest that Part One left me feeling completely thrilled and chomping at the bit to return the next night for Part Two. There were aspects of Part One which I just could not imagine how the second instalment could match and I was right. Part Two was still incredibly entertaining but it did not match part One. My feeling was that there was too much attention given to the relationships between the main characters and the necessary moving on of the main plot and not enough stage time to the more colourful and interesting characters. I don’t want to mention any specific names so as to spoil the surprises.
