How on earth did they achieve that Time-Turner effect? What were the script edits like? How did the flying Dementors work? Those who have seen Harry Potter and the Cursed Child know all too well about the abundance of magical riches the show has to offer. And now, some of its secrets are revealed in this beautiful, new behind-the-scenes book.

Available in a stunning hardback edition or as an eBook and put together by Jody Revenson, The Journey explores the many different elements that came together to bring the eighth Harry Potter story to life, from costumes to music, from early development to Opening Night. Compiled with exclusive interviews with all the original creative team, fans can expect many fun behind-the-scenes titbits to be unveiled, such as extracts from director John Tiffany’s own notebooks, and new, gorgeous photography displaying the complex rehearsal process.

For those who order the eBook, The Journey comes with an interactive element, such as five videos that invite readers to dive even deeper into Cursed Child’s inception. For example, enjoy a time-lapse of how London’s Palace Theatre was brought to life. Both theatre and Harry Potter fans are in for a treat.
