Commentaires : One play presented in two parts. Both parts are intended to be seen in order on the same day (matinee and evening), or on two consecutive evenings.
In December 2013, it was revealed that a stage play based on Harry Potter had been in development for around a year,[3] with the view to bringing it to the stage sometime in 2015. Created by J.K. Rowling, the Harry Potter series spans seven novels, selling more than 450 million copies, and was turned into an eight-part film series, which grossed more than £4.4 billion around the world. In addition, theme parks such as the Wizarding World of Harry Potter[6] and studio tours of the sets used in the films have opened based around the series. At the time of the announcement Rowling revealed that the play would “explore the previously untold story of Harry’s early years as an orphan and outcast”. In spring of the following year Rowling began establishing the creative team for the project.

Rowling stated shortly after the play's announcement that the piece would not be a prequel. In response to queries regarding the choice of a play rather than a new novel Rowling has stated that she “is confident that when audiences see the play they will agree that it is the only proper medium for the story”. Rowling has also assured audiences that the play will contain an entirely new story, and will not be a rehashing of previously explored content.

On 26 June 2015, the project was officially confirmed under the title of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, and it was revealed it would receive its world premiere in the summer of 2016 at London's Palace Theatre. The announcement marked the eighteenth anniversary of the publication of the first Harry Potter novel, Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone, published on 26 June 1997. The play's official website was made available shortly after Rowling's announcement with a register for ticket pre-orders and biographies on the main creative team.
Presse : "It’s a spectacle for the theatre, one that is filled to the brim with fan service and magical imagery that will amaze. For any Potterhead who can get their hands on a ticket, it will no doubt be a fantastic experience..." Jack Shepherd for the Independent

"This is a production that thrills at the aura of possibility lurking in the Victorian splendour of the theatre itself, a bygone age of smoke and mirrors." Dominic Cavendish for The Telegraph

"It’s convoluted, but the latest expansion of the Potter universe is thrillingly staged, with time travel and age-old quests given a dash of post-Freudian guilt." Michael Billington for The Guardian

"For once the so-called theatrical event of the year really is just that...a feast for fans, packed with pathos, dazzling choreography and moments of pure enchantment." Henry Hitchings for The Evening Standard
