“We have assembled an extraordinary cast for Broadway,” said director John Tiffany. “Our Cursed Child family is growing with twenty-eight brilliant new actors bringing their unique talents to our production. I also can’t wait to dive back into it with seven of our original London cast members reprising their thrilling performances for New York audiences. The adventure continues.”
Based on an original story by J.K. Rowling, John Tiffany, and Jack Thorne, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child picks up nineteen years after the events of The Deathly Hallows, following an adult Harry as he grapples with a past that refuses to stay where it belongs. His youngest son, Albus, must struggle with the weight of a family legacy he never wanted. As past and present fuse ominously, both father and son learn the uncomfortable truth: sometimes, darkness comes from unexpected places.
Sonia Friedman Productions, Colin Callender, and Harry Potter Theatrical Productions are producing Cursed Child on Broadway, which opens at the Lyric Theater on April 22, 2018. Tickets go on sale in October.
