I wished for Harry Potter everything, and it's like my dream came true. As a theater kid who spent her summers acting and crewing plays and musicals, I was incredibly ecstatic once I heard that J.K. Rowling announced a Harry Potter play opening in London next year called Harry Potter and the Cursed Child.
I unfortunately live in Los Angeles, so traveling to London isn't as easy as it could be (I never pass my Apparition test and I have recently run out of Floo Powder), so I have settled for making my London friends go see it for me so I can live vicariously through them.
The play will focus on Harry and Giny's son, Albus Severus.
Like elderly witches scrambling for tickets to a Celestina Warbeck concert, priority tickets went on sale, and the world went crazier than Mad-Eye Moody's magical eye in a crowded London street.
Apparently there were waits, lines, and time limits one had to endure to buy tickets. Sounds worse than one night in Azkaban!
Fans took to Twitter to express their anxiety, anger, despair, and relief over the scramble for tickets.
Good news for wizards, Muggles, and Squibs alike who are still holding onto hope that they will soon get their hands on a ticket:
With tickets in such high demand, it has been decided to extend the run of the play until January 2017!
For those of you still trying to get tickets, I bid you good luck! Take an extra sip of Felix Felicis for me! And for those of you who are already set to go, I am incredibly green with envy. I would give all the wizarding money I have in Gringotts to see it!
