Harry Potter and the Cursed Child script?

I notice there are threads for all the Harry Potter books and films. The follow-up play has just opened in London and the script on which it is based has been published worldwide today. Any chance of a FF thread to discuss the script? Perhaps with comments by people who have seen the production?

Book: Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban

For twelve long years, the dread fortress of Azkaban held an infamous prisoner named Sirius Black. Convicted of killing thirteen people with a single curse, he was said to be the heir apparent to the Dark Lord, Voldemort. Now he has escaped, leaving only two clues as to where he might be headed: Harry Potter's defeat of You-Know-Who was Black's downfall as well. And the Azkban guards heard Black muttering in his sleep, "He's at Hogwarts...he's at Hogwarts." Harry Potter isn't safe, not even within the walls of his magical school, surrounded by his friends. Because on top of it all, there may well be a traitor in their midst. Contains series spoilers [more inside]

Extra reading?

Would anyone in the Potter reread club be interested in adding in Rainbow Rowell's Carry On once the series re-read is completed?
