It is time we actually get a Harry Potter musical on Broadway

We’ve had plays, we’ve had a fan-made musical, but it is time to get an official Harry Potter musical and maybe it can even be about someone other than Harry.

If you remember growing up with the Harry Potter series then, chances are, you also remember A Very Potter Musical. Created by Darren Criss and his friends at Starkid while they were in college, the show was the musical telling of our favorite series with a bit of a mixed-up storyline.

The musical covered all the books and it was so fun to see characters interacting that maybe wouldn’t in the actual series. The problem? We want more. Since the musicals have stopped being made, we’ve gotten Harry Potter and the Cursed Child and Puffs but what if we did the musical version of the Marauders?

We want more Wormtail, Moony, Padfoot, and Prongs in our lives and if we’re not going to get a book series or television show, why not let them live on stage? Look, there are already wonderful songs that could work in a musical about Harry Potter but, with the Marauders, it can bring us more Sirius and James content.

We can see how James and Lily Potter fell in love with each other and it wouldn’t have to be rushed. That being said, with the success of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, we might just get a continuation of Harry and his family but that isn’t anything to scoff at either. It’s a great show.

Next. Just a gentle reminder that our world is basically Harry Potter at this point. dark
