It’s all a bit Deja Vu with Harry Potter and the Cursed Child


We have been here before and we are back again as anger over ticket sales for Harry Potter and the Cursed Child boils over.

You would have thought the brains behind the most magical performance in the world would have solved the simplest of problems, ticket sales. Ticket sales have gone on sale for Harry Potter and the Cursed Child and within a matter of hours, they were sold out.

And fans were not happy about this.

More from Harry Potter

Tickets were for the show in Melbourne, Australia which debuts in 2019. And like it was when Harry Potter and the Cursed Child first opened in the West End and then Broadway, there was the option to sign up for priority access and reserve your ticket.

However, there was little to no point as hopeful ticket proprietors logged in several minutes before priority ticket booking opened to find not just thousands, but tens of thousands, of people ahead of them.

So naturally, the tickets where gone within hours and fans without tickets where all left wondering, what was the point? What was the point in priority access?

And the worst thing is Harry Potter and the Cursed Child has been through this before. They know how popular and in demand the play is. Why did they not learn from their experiences from the past and do something about it.

It’s a magical mystery to me and the only thing I can say is, welcome to the world of Cursed Child Australia.
