UPDATE (August 25):
As Dumbledore Is So Gay gets ready to takes its place back on the stage for its limited run, more exciting news has made its way to fans. In a press release, it was announced that not only would the coming-of-age story be brought back to life, but the original cast would be returning to the stage as well. Alex Britt, Max Percy, and Charolette Dowding will be reprising their roles as Jack, Ollie, and Gemma, respectively. Playwright Robert Holtom commented on the exciting news:
I’m over the moon the original cast are back. They made magic in 2020 and I can’t wait to see them do it all over again. Alex, Charlotte and Max bring such skill and depth to their roles, switching between sincerity and humour on a dime. We were all so keen to keep the show going and it’s such a privilege to have the team reunited.
If you want to catch these young thespians as they conquer the trials of young adulthood, be sure to get tickets to Dumbledore Is So Gay before it disappears again.
Relive a coming-of-age story that previously touched the hearts of so many witches and wizards. Dumbledore Is So Gay will be revived onstage for limited viewing this September at the Pleasance Theatre in London, England.
The story follows Jack as he navigates the tumultuous waters of adolescence, school bullies, and a blossoming romance with his best friend, Ollie. But when things take a turn for the worse, Jack takes advantage of a Time-Turner in his possession in an attempt to bring about the happy ending he so desperately wants. Dumbledore Is So Gay tackles issues of “teenage isolation,” the everlasting impact of homophobic culture, and the “importance of self-love and friendship.”
The Pleasance Theatre announced the revival of the beloved play for this fall. Originally run back in February 2020, the play was critically acclaimed for its exploration of sensitive topics and allowing the magic of Harry Potter to relate to a wider audience. You can also read the review of the play written by one of MuggleNet’s own around the time of the original showing.
Tickets for Dumbledore Is So Gay are currently on sale online. Buying tickets in advance is highly recommended since the show is expected to sell out. More information on prices and showtimes are available on the Pleasance Theatre website.
