My rating: 3 of 5 stars
I very much enjoyed the plot. It had several twists that I didn’t expect that was reminiscent of Prisoner of Azkaban, which was definitely my favorite in the original series. It was nice to see old friends come alive again in a new story, but I felt like the old crew– Harry, Ron, Hermione– overshadowed the new lead characters enough that I couldn’t really emotionally connect with Albus in particular. Scorpius was very relatable. Loved him! I would agree with the general consensus that their relationship was a little odd trying to straddle a line to appease everyone and by doing so just made everyone angry. I could definitely see how this would a very powerful live production. I would totally go see it if I found myself in the vicinity of a show. Overall, a fair showing, which could be enjoyed by fans and newbies alike.
