The adventures continue in Part Two of The Cursed Child and while the script itself is underwhelming – actually almost fanfiction – the performance and action is enough to hold your attention and prove better than Part One.
After briefly setting off an alternate universe, Scorpius (Bubba Weiler) and Albus (Nicholas Podany) learn that Delphi (Sara Farb) is not whom she claims to be. When Harry (Steve Haggard) begins hearing Voldemort’s (Stephen Spinella) voice again, he and his son have to team up to take down the dark forces around them.
Harry has some great character development in this part where you get to see the lasting effects of the PTSD he has from his time fighting Voldemort. Haggard shows great emotion that shatters toxic masculinity.
Final say: A crazy story that you won’t believe but a dazzling show. ★★★★☆
