What I liked

Stage props were almost non existent, but the few that existed were used very creatively. I especially really like the acting of Scorpius (Connor) and Cecilia (Audi), but everyone character was well portraited.

We also really enjoyed the pop quiz questions during intermission. Very fun.

What I didn't like

i think this play deserves a better stage and venue in a better part of town to attract more audience. More and props will make the play even better. Good luck to all.

My overall impression

First thought was the venue (Studio/Stage) was in a very seedy part of town. The venue itself is very small and dingy. So, we didn’t expect much from the look of the place and also because the ticket price was a fraction of what a broadway play cost.

To our surprise, the actors and actresses were very GOOD. All characters were true to the Harry Potter story. I couldn’t stand Albus’s oversensitivity and drama, but that was to show that the actor was very good at portraying the character.
