Do you hear that far-off sound? That's the sound of everybody (in England, mostly) having fun without you.
As of today (October 28), priority tickets for "Harry Potter and the Cursed Child," J.K. Rowling's West End, Albus Severus Potter-centric sequel to the "Harry Potter" series, are on sale via Nimax Theaters. You had to be pre-registered at the play's official website at Nimax to get them today, though -- as well as awake at 11 a.m. GMT to get your pick of the litter -- so by the time you read this, the tickets for the reduced price preview performances on June 7 to July 29 might be sold out. Bummer.
But there's no need to give up all hope Azkaban-style if you didn't make the cut -- regular tickets aren't that much more expensive (they range from 15 to 65£ for both shows of the two-parter), and they'll be up for grabs beginning on Friday, October 30. So even if your friend gets to go weeks before you, you can brag that at least you got to see the show once the 30 unnamed actors learned to really nail their roles!
