The Telegraph has a short article online, with more on a possible Harry Potter stage production that might have been. The paper reports that many years ago, acclaimed theater director and producer Sir Trevor Nunn had expressed an interest in creating a stage production out of the Harry Potter novels, but when he asked, he discovered he was too late as he was told ‘Oh if only you had
come to us a few weeks ago. We have just sold the movie rights’,” he
harrumphs. “It will be a long time now before anyone is allowed to
stage Harry Potter.”

Reflecting now on the possibility of staging such a production, Trevor Nunn continues “The movies are so spectacular ’ it’s a bit like The Lord of the
,” he says. “Unless you go in the opposite direction and
don’t go for spectacle, there’s no way you can compete.”
