‘Harry Potter and the Cursed Child’ @ Lyric Theatre: NYC (11/15/22)

November 15, 2022 marks the start of a new year at Hogwarts. Welcome Year 4 of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child! This was the first performance of the new cast. And I already love them so much!!!

I’d also like to disclaimer that JKR does *not* profit off of Cursed Child ticket sales based on research, which is why I continue to see it. I assume she still gets a flat rate fee to use the characters, similar to how Universal Studios pays her a flat rate for Harry Potter world, but similarly buying a ticket to Universal does not directly profit JKR. She will get that flat fee regardless of how many Universal tickets are bought.

I’m going to try and be as honest and open in my reviews as I can. Please note these are my personal opinions and I’m always open to discussions!

‘Harry Potter and the Cursed Child’ @ Lyric Theatre: NYC (11/13/22)

This weekend was insanly busy for me. I went to a concert Saturday night (Walk The Moon!), went to bed at 3am and was up and at a Broadway show by 2pm the next day, I don’t know how either. BUT. This wasn’t just any Sunday matinee. This was the final show of the Year 3 cast. I couldn’t miss one last chance to see this cast before graduation.

It’s been 4 months since my last trip to the underworld, so I was overdue for another visit! Hadestown is a show I always enjoy seeing, even if I don’t see it that often.

Broadway Wrap Up: October 2022

I saw 8 Broadway shows in October! It was another busy month with New York Comic Con in the beginning but things are calming down slightly….I say as I’m currently planning a UK trip for the end of November! November’s Wrap Up will hopefully include some West End shows which I’m super excited about!

My favorite show this month was Almost Famous, as you can see by the fact I saw it 3x. Highly recommend seeing it on Broadway! Kpop was also a LOT of fun and I can’t wait to see it again soon!

‘MJ: the musical’ @ Neil Simon Theatre: NYC (10/31/22)

I have been entering the MJ lottery for agesssss. AGES! MJ The Musical – aka a bio-musical about Michael Jackson – is a show I’ve heard many good things about but it was never top of my list to see, so I figured I’d see it when the lottery said it was time.

‘Almost Famous’ @ Jacobs Theatre: NYC (11/2/22)

I truly didn’t plan to see Almost Famous again during previews, but sometimes these things just have a way of falling into your lap and who am I to say no to attending the final preview performance!

Official opening night is November 3, 2022 so I saw the last preview and I really felt the excitement and energy of the actors on stage! (I heard afterwards at stage door that they were all trying on their opening night outfits after this nights performance~)

‘Stranger Sings’ @ Playhouse 46 at St. Lukes: NYC (10/30/22)

What better way to spend Halloween weekend than seeing off-Broadway show Stranger Sings – a musical parody of – you guessed it – Stranger Things! I love Stranger Things so when I heard about this parody musical and saw TodayTix had $37 rush tickets, I figured it was worth a watch!

‘Harry Potter and the Cursed Child’ @ Lyric Theatre: NYC (10/23/22)

I honestly didn’t plan to see Cursed Child again before cast change day in November, but when I learned they started doing stage door again recently I was like, “…..whelp guess I need to go back!” and entered the lottery and won immediately so HERE WE ARE BACK AT THE LYRIC THEATRE!

I’d also like to disclaimer that JKR does *not* profit off of Cursed Child ticket sales based on research, which is why I continue to see it. I assume she still gets a flat rate fee to use the characters, similar to how Universal Studios pays her a flat rate for Harry Potter world, but similarly buying a ticket to Universal does not directly profit JKR.
