Not gonna lie, got emotional watching this. Hoping theatre in the United States, as well as everywhere else around the globe, can reach this level of normalcy soon.

Nice video. I am hoping most of the Broadway shows that reopen will livestream their first curtain call back, they will all be incredibly special moments that I'm sure will be followed by moving speeches. 

Back to HP, is this production still being presented in two parts down under?

That video really got me and made me cry because I miss being in a theater and being in an audience so much. I can't wait for the magic to return to not only Cursed Child productions but Broadway, tours, etc soon. 

Jordan - According to their website/Ticketmaster - https://www.ticketmaster.com.au/harrypotter?_ga=2.211718229.1912185512.1614392652-1484887337.1614392652 - yes, the show is still being presented in two parts.

I found a video from the company that owns the theater where Cursed Child is playing in Melbourne explaining their Covid policies and it's pretty impressive: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0gtyyRBYkaU&feature=youtu.be

Come From Away has been playing at the Comedy Theatre since January, Sydney had Pippin in November , Frozen began as well. Brisbane had Shrek from January, with little hiccups here and there Australia has had films playing in most parts of the country since May last year ( a lot of it not really worth watching )

That was wonderful to see, can't wait until it happens on Broadway. I haven't really been following Australia's reopening, is it full audiences? Masks?

EDIT: I watched more of the clip and looks like it is full capacity, couldn't see if masks were one or not. Anyone know?

Mr. Wormwood - The photos they took during the video were posted to Instagram and you can see the audience and the capacity of the theater:
