Very little information is shared with theater-goers about “Privacy” before you enter the theater. We know it’s got something to do with technology and our relationship to it. We know we’ll be encouraged to leave our phones on during the performance. Most of the audience enters the Public Theater’s Newman Theater knowing nothing beyond these few facts. It was enough to get us to buy tickets, but does it guarantee an enjoyable night?
The bad news is that tickets for “Privacy”, currently running in New York City and starring Daniel Radcliffe, are sold out. The good news is that if you missed out on seeing the show, you can still see Radcliffe live, in person, discussing the themes of the play as part of the Public Theater’s Forum series – and tickets are still available!
Those of us who are unable to make it London to see “Harry Potter and the Cursed Child” are counting down the days until the script is released – it won’t be long now! To celebrate this momentous occasion, Waterstones is hosting a drawing to win one of seven copies of the book signed by J.K. Rowling, John Tiffany, and Jack Thorne!
Irish solicitor Brian Conroy noticed some trademark registrations today that are very interesting to “Harry Potter” fans – Warner Bros. has applied for a “Harry Potter and the Cursed Child” trademark, which would include a license for “motion picture films,” among other things.

Back in May, it was announced that J.K. Rowling would be attending a special gala performance of “Harry Potter and the Cursed Child” to benefit her charity, Lumos. As of this morning, a new batch of tickets to the gala is available via an auction!
Blink and you might miss it! At the premiere of “The Legend of Tarzan” earlier this week, “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them” director David Yates confirmed that J.K. Rowling has already completed a script for the second film in the trilogy.
