Video of the Day: ‘Harry Potter’ actress says Trump not invited to see play

During an interview with Variety, actress Noma Dumezweni said Donald Trump is not invited to see the latest “Harry Potter” production, titled, “Harry Potter and the Cursed Child.”

Here’s video, posted to Twitter by Variety:

That’s what we thought.

Variety noted:

Of the shows nominated for best new play at the June 10 Tony Awards, three out of the five originated in London. The race for lead actor in a play is being run by four Britons and one American (or maybe 1.5, if you count dual citizen Andrew Garfield); the ratio’s the same in the competition for featured actress in a play. And the frontrunner for lead actress in a play? Glenda Jackson, who’s so British she used to be a member of Parliament.

There’s always been a transatlantic theater pipeline between New York and London, particularly for plays (think “Nicholas Nickleby” and “War Horse”), and the balance shifts from season to season. Last year all four new play nominees at the Tony Awards were written by living American writers. This year, U.S.-bred plays were sparse, and the biggest headline grabbers — two-part epics “Angels in America,” setting a new record with 11 nominations, and “Harry Potter and the Cursed Child,” the leading candidate for new play with 10 — came from across the pond.

In case you’re wondering, Dumezweni did say that everyone else is invited to the play.
