Not to Be
I Spaceman was devastated when the Broadway production of “Harry Potter and the Cursed Child” had to close due to COVID-19. I had tickets with great seats but my experiencing of this theatrical production was not to be. Saying I was “bummed” is an understatement.
Harry Potter Presence
But thankfully even in the thick of the Coronavirus lockdowns, Harry Potter is everywhere in New York. True, I am tapped into Potter while being in quarantine, but I can still at least vicariously enjoy the presence of Harry Potter in our great city.
Our Great City
The photo included with this post is a random New York fan on his laptop. But as you can see, on the wall next to him is HP’s famous symbol. Expressions of fandom are happening all over Manhattan. In fact, I am noticing via the internet that fans and their love of J.K. Rowling’s masterful series is only getting more intense than ever as we all wait out the deadly disease.
Will Magic Save Us?
According to Forbes, the New York City lockdown is costing 173 million dollars per day. People are slowly stepping out of their apartments after nearly three months of being caged with many being participants of the ongoing protest demonstrations. They are not implementing Social Distancing. Can Potter’s magic save them from not getting COVID-19?
Spreading the Word
The official reopening of the Big Apple is tomorrow, Monday June 8th. I don’t know if I am going to venture from my apartment at that time. We’ll see. But one thing for sure is that when I do, I will spread the word of Harry Potter!
