It took Britain's Olivier Awards by storm, breaking records with nine wins including best new play, and now "Harry Potter and the Cursed Child" is flying across the pond to conquer its next battle: Broadway. Harry Potter and the Cursed Child - Parts One and Two is coming to the Lyric Theater in NY!
In case you've been saving money to journey to London to see Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, you can either put that money toward something else or get yourself a nice hotel room in NY instead.
The Broadway transfer was first announced a few months ago, along with plans to renovate the Lyric Theatre to meet the specifications of the show. It has been playing to sold-out crowds in London's West End since it opened to ecstatic reviews in July a year ago at the Palace Theatre. The Lyric Theatre will be the NY home to the play beginning on April 22, 2018.
US Harry Potter fans, the time has finally come! The production is presented in two parts, meant to be seen on the same day.
Tickets will go on sale in the Fall via the official website only. While Harry 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. The cast begin performances at the Palace Theatre in London on 24 May.
