Never in my wildest dreams did I think I would get to walk on the stage of my favorite Broadway show….but on Sunday I got to be on the stage at the Lyric Theatre, home of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child.
April 22nd was Cursed Child’s 5th Anniversary since opening, and on Sunday, April 23, they had a fan appreciation pre-show event which I was fortunate enough to be invited to! It was like a class reunion honestly, seeing so many friends I haven’t seen in a while, it was nice so many of us were there.
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!
