There’s officially an opening date for Broadway’s Harry Potter and the Cursed Child!
The play is set to open at the Lyric Theater on April 22th, 2018. The original West End production opened in July 2016 to rave reviews and recently won nine Olivier Awards.
The Cursed Child takes place where the epilogue of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows ends, nineteen years after the Battle of Hogwarts, and follows Harry’s son Albus, and Draco Malfoy’s son Scorpius, as they begin their first year at Hogwarts. The play, written by Jack Thorne, is based on a story by J.K. Rowling, Thorne, and director John Tiffany.
The cast for the Broadway production has not been released and the London production, which is divided into two parts, can be seen in either one long marathon showing or divided into a two-day event. Tickets for the show are expected to be released this fall.
