6. Harry Potter and the Cursed Child

Despite your feelings on the 2016 original script from J.K. Rowling, Jack Thorne, and John Tiffany (we still need to talk about the Trolley Witch), the eighth Harry Potter story (and the first officially presented on stage) is unmissable for all Potterheads in 2019. Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is exclusive to Melbourne and warranted a massive makeover of the Princess Theatre, prepping the venue for the world’s first production of the Cursed Child outside of the West End and Broadway.
