Yes. If you haven't read the books, I think you'd enjoy the book too. I got overly critical of the play, tbh, but generally I did like it. I was eager to talk about anything HP when the book/play came out.

Good to know. I enjoyed reading the books when I was younger, but tend to like the films even more!

The books are waaaay better than the film and yet the play is waaaay better than the screenplay book.

The films are good, imo. Yes they cut out some important parts but in the grand scheme of things, they got it all right. Best book adaptation, imo.

Again, I'm sure this will be sold out.

^ Thanks for posting.

If you'll be in Broadway next year, check the play out. I wonder when we'll find out who the cast for Broadway will be?

If someone only watched the films and never read the books, then I think they'll be more open-minded and appreciate Cursed Child than someone who did real all seven books. It also depends on how much you've developed your head-canon, because I think that's the biggest flaw of the play and people's negative reaction to it.

A lot of people establish in their head (in a totally sane way) what could or would or should happen to each main character after "Nineteen Years Later" or completely diverge from canon altogether. Cursed Child itself seems to be a mash-up of various head-canons as well as fanfics.

Personally, I don't like Cursed Child, and not because of my head-canon. I don't like it because it breaks some important "rules" established in the seven books.

I couldn't agree more, Jenna. If you're a casual HP fan, CC is worth seeing/reading. But if you've been in the fandom long enough, you will have an opinion about it and while I generally like it, I have a lot of problems with some of the storylines. Also, you would know right away just from reading it that the script book is not written by Jo.

No dreams are crushed. These headlines are hilarious! As if anyone actually believed that fake story. Dan would never do it anyway. I want Jamie's Harry!!! But I want them to film the stage production not a motion picture.
