I didn't think I could like Harry Potter more than I already did! 19 years later was the cool sequel I always wanted, it was funny but dark and really exciting and the acting was on point from all the characters... full review

The writing in this show is absolutely incredible and the script speaks for itself. Worthen writes new, genuine characters into creation, and develops and stays true to your favorite Harry Potter characters, all while weaving in clever humor and pure magic. The cast is fantastic and paints a beautiful picture of how the next generation of Hogwarts wizards and witches grow and love in the ever-changing wizarding world.... full review

This is a fantastic tribute to Harry Potter and answer to Cursed Child. The writing made sense!! It's full of both funny and tear-jerking moments (and digs at Cursed Child), and incredible special effects. If this play could be produced again with the production value it deserves, I would absolutely see it like five more times. Honestly, it's that good. If you have ever even vaguely heard of Harry Potter, go see it.... full review

Fun for Fans to step into a Brand New Potter-land, but pretty glum going, with adultery and bitter familial conflicts on the agenda! Enthusiastic (and Large!) Cast gallops through 5 years at Hogwarts in 14 scenes and 45 minutes in Act One, with plenty of downtime for blackouts. In Act Two, longer, mid-life original Harry and his pals step forward to manage The Plot to a Happy and actionful Ending. Missing the Music and the Magnificent Mounting of the Movies, it still held my attention! ... full review

As we left, our conclusion was that this was a pretty good piece of fan fiction, well performed. If you are into, or at least familiar with, the HP-universe (and I don’t mean the printer), it is well worth seeing.... full review

This show was so much fun, and felt wonderful to be back in the world of magic! Some of the actors stood out starkly from the others, but overall everyone did a great job telling this story. Transitions were quick and smooth, lighting accented the actions very well. It had a strong theme that is all too important right now - we must set aside all differences for the safety and sake of our children.... full review

I loved this show!!! The acting was impressive, costumes on target, and the story was: entertaining, hilarious, mysterious, surprising, touching... and I had to wipe away tears at the end of the show. Special effects with lighting, wands that lit up, and music all gave the show an authentic quality. I highly recommend “19 Years Later” if you are a Harry Potter fan. I also recommend it if you are not a HP fan... just watch the first HP movie and you will be fine. ... full review

Honestly, so impressed. I love Harry Potter as much as pretty much anyone and this show was the sequel i had been wanting for a long time! Lots of jabs at Cursed Child if you know that story, and overall the whole experience was fun and playful. Lots of characters, the story was dark and fun and scary and funny and just everything i could have wanted! 10/10 recommend! The script was incredible and engaging... I seriously could not have been happier. ... full review
