I am beyond ecstatic to get my Muggle paws on a copy of the script for Harry Potter And The Cursed Child, set for release this summer, since there is sadly no way I will ever get a chance to hop on my Firebolt and fly over to England to watch the play.
Mainly because I am a Muggle and I don't own a Firebolt.
But I will continue to try to brew some Felix Felicis, hoping that the show somehow gets around to touring the US. That, and use some Muggle "magic," also known as "crossing my fingers."
J.K. Rowling retweeted this Pottermore post letting us know that rehearsals are well underway, and look how jolly and ecstatic the cast and crew are!
