With the release of “Harry Potter and the Cursed Child” at midnight on July 31, J.K.Rowling has rebuffed her critics who feel that she is stuck in the past. As everyone knows by now, the “Cursed Child” which is currently on stage in London is a script-book that is not a rewriting of the past but more about how the past affects the future.
Two key characters in the story are Albus Severus Potter and Scorpius Malfoy, two young wizards trying to find their place in Hogwarts and the world the way their fathers did before them.
Critics feel that the stage directions leave much to be desired in descriptions of setting and action scenes. “Without actors behind them, unestablished characters feel flat and underdeveloped.”
Regardless of what critics say, Potter fans know that Rowling loves her characters as much as the readers do. “After all, love, as Voldemort never understood, is the strongest magic of all.”
