Reading the cast/character list in the program (unannounced til now) gives you good sense of where the story is gonna go #KeepTheSecrets

Before the show began, Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling appeared in a video asking fans to keep the content of the play a secret. Afterward, she reminded fans to be extra-careful about spoiling the play by using the hashtag #keepthesecrets.

And fans have been keeping that promise, limiting their social media posts to just their feelings about the play.
