  1. Hey, just wanted to say that I got to see the show last week and it was really great. I bought tickets when they were first released last year and resisted reading the book before seeing the show so that’s my only experience with the story.

    It’s obvious that the plot was weak but the combo of all the effects, costumes, acting, music, and such made it easy to overlook that and just enjoy being back in the magical world of Harry Potter.

    I won’t spoil it here in case anyone else gets to actually see the show, but they also had some clever effects that made great use of the theater itself so if you were to only catch it on DVD you’d miss out on a few things like that.

    Overall highly recommend the show if you can manage to get tickets sometime after 2017 🙂

  2. Thanks Stephen for listening and feedback on theatre show, just need to hope dies down when tickets are next released 🙂
