“They were great men, with huge flaws, and you know what – those flaws almost made them greater.”

Summary

The Eighth Story. Nineteen Years Later.

Based on an original new story by J.K. Rowling, Jack Thorne and John Tiffany, a new play by Jack Thorne, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is the eighth story in the Harry Potter series and the first official Harry Potter story to be presented on stage. The play will receive its world premiere in London’s West End on July 30, 2016.

It was always difficult being Harry Potter and it isn’t much easier now that he is an overworked employee of the Ministry of Magic, a husband and father of three school-age children.

While Harry grapples with a past that refuses to stay where it belongs, his youngest son Albus must struggle with the weight of a family legacy he never wanted. As past and present fuse ominously, both father and son learn the uncomfortable truth: sometimes, darkness comes from unexpected places.

Personal Experiences

J.K. Rowling, it’s good to have you back!

I seriously missed her sarcastic humor, amazing plots, and loving characters.

Most critics will say that to have this book in play (theater) format is a huge disadvantage. I completely disagree. Yes, there was little to no imagery or thoughts, but this is a obstacle Rowling overcame. She made it possible to tell this entire story through a conversation.This is a reason I admire so much.

The story’s main characters are Albus Severus Potter, Harry and Ginny’s son, and Scorpius Malfoy, Draco and Astoria’s son. This was not a surprise to see that a Potter and a Malfoy would become best friends. Their task is to go back in time 25 years, to the 4th Harry Potter book (Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire), and stop Voldemort from ever killing Cedric Diggory. 

At first glance, I thought this was the stupidest thing ever! If you go back and save Cedric, wouldn’t Harry die? Unfortunately this isn’t the case. I will leave it up to you to figure out what actually happens.

If this isn’t enough to deal with, imagine this: Albus gets put in the Slytherin House, Scorpius is rumored to be Voldemort’s son, and Harry’s scar is magically hurting again. 

Quotes

“Harry, there is never a perfect answer in this messy, emotional world. Perfection is beyond the reach of humankind, beyond the reach of magic. In every shining moment of happiness is that drop of poison: the knowledge that pain will come again. Be honest to those you love, show your pain. To suffer is as human as to breathe.” 


“We cannot protect the young from harm. Pain must and will come.”


“The truth is a beautiful and terrible thing, and should therefore be treated with great caution.”


“The world changes and we change with it. I am better off in this world. But the world is not better. And I don’t want that.”


“It’s tough to live with people stuck in the past, isn’t it?”


“Well. Hello. Yeh must be Harry. Hello, Harry Potter. I’m Rubeus Hagrid. And I’m gonna be yer friend whether yeh like it or not. ’Cos yeh’ve had it tough, not that yeh know it yet. An’ yer gonna need friends. Now yeh best come with me, don’t yeh think?”

  1. I use GoDaddy as my host. You d have to pay a monthly fee, but within 24 hours you should receive an email saying your site is up and running. I use GoDaddy, and I am still able to use WordPress templates. I think it depends on which his you end up using. You will probably have to check with the host’s website and maybe visit the FAQS.

  2. The Zune concentrates on being a Portable Media Player. Not a web browser. Not a game machine. Maybe in the future it’ll do even better in those areas, but for now it’s a fantastic way to organize and listen to your music and videos, and is without peer in that regard. The iPod’s strengths are its web browsing and apps. If those sound more compelling, perhaps it is your best choice.

  3. This is getting a bit more subjective, but I much prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has more flair, and some cool features like ‘Mixview’ that let you quickly see related albums, songs, or other users related to what you’re listening to. Clicking on one of those will center on that item, and another set of “neighbors” will come into view, allowing you to navigate around exploring by similar artists, songs, or users. Speaking of users, the Zune “Social” is also great fun, letting you find others with shared tastes and becoming friends with them. You then can listen to a playlist created based on an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening to, which is also enjoyable. Those concerned with privacy will be relieved to know you can prevent the public from seeing your personal listening habits if you so choose.
