The first opportunity to buy tickets to the play "Harry Potter and the Cursed Child" occurred Wednesday morning and made some of the franchise's most diehard fans angry.
In less than an hour, the tickets for preview performances from June 7 to September 18, 2016 were sold out. To add insult to injury, the volume of buyers caused technical difficulties for the online ticketing system, according to the Belfast Telegraph.
As these tickets were available to buyers who pre-registered for the opportunity (Read: The most faithful fans), customers became very angry.
