Listen up, Potterheads. J.K Rowling’s Harry Potter reprisal, Harry Potter And The Cursed Child is in the theatre now! Actually, scrap that – you already know. The whole thing’s booked up until 2017.
Apart from the occasional snippets of Potter trivia Rowling has leaked onto Twitter, we’ve largely lived exclusively in the Muggle world since the release of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part Two in 2011. This makes Cursed Child a really big deal, so social media coverage of the show is a stressful combination of anticipation, adoration and hush hush to #KeepTheSecrets in the chamber.

The play seems to have lived up to expectations

So the anticipation is too much for some
But I want to wear my Ravenclaw tshirt.
And I kind of want to bring my wand.
But that's probably not appropriate.
Or is it?#cursedchild

And former power couple Matt Bellamy and Kate Hudson, who reunited to take their son, Bing, to the show
Some are looking to J.K Rowling for tips on getting tickets

Harry Potter and the Cursed Child has got some punters going to the theatre for the first time ever
Its only fitting that the first ever theatre tickets I purchase are for the Harry Potter play #HarryPotterAndTheCursedChild

Mostly though, people can’t even deal with how epic it is
