Review by CHARLES ZIARKO

June 18, 2018 certified reviewer

What I liked

The complexities of the plot and characters, familiar but still seemingly fresh.

What I didn't like

Malfoy Junior, a major character now, often spoke so fast he wasn’t understandable!

My overall impression

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!
