The magic is finally coming to Broadway! Harry Potter and the Cursed Child will open on Broadway on Sunday, April 22, 2018 at the Lyric Theater.
The theater is currently going through a complete transformation to accommodate the multitude of literal smoke and mirrors needed to bring the magic to the stage.
Cursed Child is having a successful run at the Palace Theater in London’s West End. It recently won a record-breaking nine Olivier Awards, including Best New Play.
Expect news and casting announcements in the months to come.
According to Pottermore, tickets will go on sale in the Fall, and can be purchased only through the Cursed Child website.
The eighth story in the Harry Potter saga, Cursed Child is a two-part play that audiences can watch over two days or in a single, marathon day. The play was written by Jack Thorne, based on a story by Rowling, Thorne and director John Tiffany.
Taking place 19 years after the events of The Deathly Hallows, the story follows Harry, Ron, and Hermione in their 30s, dealing with the trials of being working adults and parents. Meanwhile, Harry’s son, Albus, struggles with the weight of his family’s legacy.
A new Twitter account was created for Cursed Child on Broadway. Below is their tweet announcing the show coming to the States.
