Theatre shows to see this Autumn – Harry Potter and the cursed Child

There were many theatre shows to see right now in theatres. But the adaptation, which goes beyond the storyline of the favourite book series “Harry Potter and the cursed child” is the show to see. Many critics have downplayed it as a book, but as a show on stage, it is really enjoyable. It is one of the Shows to see at North Wales’ theatres in autumn and winter. The storyline carries from the very moment the seventh book ” Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows” ends. The characterisation of the young Albus Severus Potter is great and in some instances, it will feel like reading “Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone”. The show should be on everybody’s list of theatre shows to see in spite of the negative reviews. If you have read the series of books by J.K Rowling, or have seen the movies you will be enthralled by the on stage show. This is indeed a must see show for the family.
