Here’s some pretty tragic news that you should immediately obliviate after reading.
All was going well across the pond this weekend as author J.K. Rowling’s latest installment in her magical Harry Potter series hit the London stage. Critics have been raving about Harry Potter and the Cursed Child for a while now — it’s even gotten approval from Hermione herself — so fans were pretty eager to give their own stamp of approval when it debuted at London’s West End theater.
Apparently, the show doesn’t disappoint but because scoring tickets to it is almost as difficult as getting in to see Hamilton, even more Potter maniacs were lined up outside bookstores on Sunday to take home their copy of the book based on the play. The story follows the bespectacled Chosen One 19 years after he’s defeated You-Know-Who. Harry’s now a middle-aged father of three and an overworked employee of the Ministry of Magic.
