It looks like the boy who lived will be making a triumphant return, however this time Harry Potter will be making the jump from the silver screen to the West End stage! In an exclusive interview, British journalist Baz Bamigboye reveals that JK Rowling will be acting as co-producer for the theatre production which will focus on Harry's early life.  Ms Rowling will not be responsible for writing the play and has the involvement of theatre producers Sonia Freidman and Colin Callender.  In a statement the production team said the play will showcase ‘the previously untold story of Harry Potter’s early years as an orphan and outcast’. Ms Rowling has been approached on several occasions to put Harry on the stage, but has always said no; however she believes Freidman and Callender were the right pair to continue the story of Harry Potter. "It was the only one that really made sense to me, and which had the sensitivity, intensity and intimacy I thought appropriate for bringing Harry’s story to the stage. After a year in gestation, it is very exciting to see this project moving onto the next phrase." No further details have been released at present, and no theatre is attached to the production which is due to premiere in 2015.  I will see you at the front of the ticket queue!
