The new behind-the-scenes book, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child: The Journey, invites you to go beyond the curtain of the award-winning stage production – the eighth story, set 19 years after the end of J.K. Rowling’s original seven Harry Potter books – and learn all about how it came to be.

Available today as a full-colour eBook written by Jody Revenson, The Journey explores the many different elements that came together to bring the eighth Harry Potter story to life on stage: 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.

The eBook of The Journey, developed for digital from the hardback edition published by Little, Brown in the UK and Scholastic Inc. in the US, also comes with audio-visual content – five videos that invite readers to dive even deeper into Cursed Child’s inception. For example, enjoy time-lapse of how London’s Palace Theatre and Melbourne’s Princess Theatre were brought to life.

Both theatre and Harry Potter fans are in for a treat.
