I didn't think I could like Harry Potter more than I already did! 19 years later was the cool sequel I always wanted, it was funny but dark and really exciting and the acting was on point from all the characters... full review

First thought was the venue (Studio/Stage) was in a very seedy part of town. The venue itself is very small and dingy. So, we didn't expect much from the look of the place and also because the ticket price was a fraction of what a broadway play cost. To our surprise, the actors and actresses were very GOOD. All characters were true to the Harry Potter story. I couldn't stand Albus's oversensitivity and drama, but that was to show that the actor was very good at portraying the character.... full review

This show was so much fun, and felt wonderful to be back in the world of magic! Some of the actors stood out starkly from the others, but overall everyone did a great job telling this story. Transitions were quick and smooth, lighting accented the actions very well. It had a strong theme that is all too important right now - we must set aside all differences for the safety and sake of our children.... full review

This is a fantastic tribute to Harry Potter and answer to Cursed Child. The writing made sense!! It's full of both funny and tear-jerking moments (and digs at Cursed Child), and incredible special effects. If this play could be produced again with the production value it deserves, I would absolutely see it like five more times. Honestly, it's that good. If you have ever even vaguely heard of Harry Potter, go see it.... full review

Fun for Fans to step into a Brand New Potter-land, but pretty glum going, with adultery and bitter familial conflicts on the agenda! Enthusiastic (and Large!) Cast gallops through 5 years at Hogwarts in 14 scenes and 45 minutes in Act One, with plenty of downtime for blackouts. In Act Two, longer, mid-life original Harry and his pals step forward to manage The Plot to a Happy and actionful Ending. Missing the Music and the Magnificent Mounting of the Movies, it still held my attention! ... full review

As we left, our conclusion was that this was a pretty good piece of fan fiction, well performed. If you are into, or at least familiar with, the HP-universe (and I don’t mean the printer), it is well worth seeing.... full review

Really great show! Great story about the Harry Potter characters and their kids fighting the dark forces 19 years later. The story was absorbing and the fight scenes were fun to watch. Wonderful performances by the cast doing quirky characters and British accents. Very smooth, well orchestrated performance even though there were a large number of scenes and costume changes. A must see show for Harry Potter fans, but a fun show for all theater fans.... full review

I loved this show!!! The acting was impressive, costumes on target, and the story was: entertaining, hilarious, mysterious, surprising, touching... and I had to wipe away tears at the end of the show. Special effects with lighting, wands that lit up, and music all gave the show an authentic quality. I highly recommend “19 Years Later” if you are a Harry Potter fan. I also recommend it if you are not a HP fan... just watch the first HP movie and you will be fine. ... full review

Honestly, so impressed. I love Harry Potter as much as pretty much anyone and this show was the sequel i had been wanting for a long time! Lots of jabs at Cursed Child if you know that story, and overall the whole experience was fun and playful. Lots of characters, the story was dark and fun and scary and funny and just everything i could have wanted! 10/10 recommend! The script was incredible and engaging... I seriously could not have been happier. ... full review
