Re: Harry Potter the Musical? Watch it or Not?

^ I reccomend everyone to watch that- it's hilariously witty and amazing!

It made me realize that HP as a musical can only work if it's done in a comedic way. I think it would be way awkward for a HP musical if it tried to take itself seriously whilst everyone sang and danced.

Re: Harry Potter the Musical? Watch it or Not?

It is great for all true HP fans I greatly enjoyed it and was laughing through it. It's not an "official" musical but feels as good as any. The actors , as HP fans, made it very enjoyable and all the inside jokes were very well done. I highly recommend it.

Definitely . If they ever made an HP musical now, however, I'd expect Draco to be played by a girl, and an alto.

For sure, it just wouldn't work without that! I suppose that it's proof that a musical could be done if it were tongue and cheek.

I'm glad I already saw SKP's musical as they've temporarily taken down all of the videos :0

Re: Harry Potter the Musical? Watch it or Not?

I think it depends on the music, the songs and choreography but I would give it a chance. My last (and only) two encounters with musicals were pleasant (Dirty Dancing and The Lion King) and I wouldn't mind seeing a HP musical, it might fun to see.

Re: Harry Potter the Musical? Watch it or Not?

As a musical theater fanatic I LOVED this. I was rolling around in my seats with laughter.
Cast wise I could picture Kerry Ellis as Cho. I'm not really sure why, but I think that would be really funny. I could also picture the guys from Spring Awakening (Jonathan Groff and John Gallager Jr.) as Harry and Ron.

Re: Harry Potter the Musical? Watch it or Not?

I thought what I've seen of it so far is really hysterical! I'm not a big fan of musicals in general, but I really enjoyed this. I hope it's back online soon!

Re: Harry Potter the Musical? Watch it or Not?

I would definitely see a musical if they did it. As weird as it would be I'm sure some of it would be sweet, most musicals are.

Re: Harry Potter the Musical? Watch it or Not?

I would watch it because I love any and all things HP, but I'm a bit of a thesbian, and I never liked musicals.

Re: Harry Potter the Musical? Watch it or Not?

i just watched the first act and liked it. not ROFL liked it, but it was good. however, i know people who don't know much about HP but do know a lot about what's hot on YouTube, and they watched it and became instant fans.

Re: Harry Potter the Musical? Watch it or Not?

I absolutely LOVED this musical, and nearly died laughing! All the songs have gotten stuck in my head, and I've watched the videos dozens of times. Any Harry Potter fan would like it, and it's obvious it was made by true fans because they have such a knowledge of the books. They really did a great job with it, and they're going to perform it live at Infinitus next July, so I heard.

"A Very Potter Musical"

There was an article presenting this play a month or two ago. I watched it and loved it. I just came back and decided to watch it again and it's just as great the 2nd time around!

Who else loves this movie!!

Here is the link to Act 1, Scene 1 on youtube. Enjoy!

Re: Harry Potter the Musical? Watch it or Not?

Ok, I just watcched the entire musical on youtubes, and I fell in love! The bit with Quirrell is too funny, and Ron took the cake! The headband, and the constantly eating. And (bad me) I watched the ending first, so I was all confused. Quadruple thumbs up!
