Strictly for Potterheads

I was in the audience at the world premiere of the new Harry Potter play in London this evening. I won’t give anything away, other than to say that it’s rather awesome. This is going to be huge.

The play is in two parts, so I’ll be back there on Thursday to see how it ends.

Everything in the show was a surprise because there have been no leaks at all about the story, and I have no intention of giving any spoilers here. There was a tremendous atmosphere – there were many hardcore Potterheads in the audience who responded to every detailed twist and turn with gasps of horror, joy or laughter.

And yes, I am a bit of a Potterhead myself, although nowhere near as hardcore as my kids.

Anyway, this was the scene outside the theatre afterwards as the media gathered …
