January is usually relatively quiet when it comes to Melbourne theatre, but with a few major international blockbusters – and Midsumma festival getting underway – there are more than a few highlights.

RECOMMENDED: The best art exhibitions in Melbourne this month.

Mainstage

Harry Potter and the Cursed Child

4 out of 5 stars
Theatre Drama

The first rule of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is that you don’t talk about Harry Potter and the Cursed Child. Safeguarding spoilers is an expected responsibility for anyone who attends the Potter-verse’s first on-stage outing. There’s even a hashtag: #KeepTheSecrets. But in truth (as far as theatre critique is concerned, at least), JK Rowling needn’t have worried.

Looking for affordable theatre all year round?
