3. Don't let the hype scare you away. Many companies (large and independent) decided to take advantage of the new release by encouraging sales of Harry Potter merchandise, HP themed gifts, and HP events. Just like you don't judge a book by its cover, don't judge this one by the hype around it.
5. This is a script; therefore, it is meant to be performed - not read. This is the mantra of every theatre appreciation teacher in the world. If what you are reading is a script, it wasn't meant to be read - it was meant to be viewed as a performance. Unfortunately, many of us cannot view the Cursed Child in performance and we are lucky to have the script! But, I'd have theatre majors, friends, and colleagues jumping me if I failed to mention this one!
