'Harry Potter & the Cursed Child' is Coming to Broadway!
Great news for Harry Potter fans who have been dying to see Harry Potter and the Cursed Child but haven’t been able to travel to London!
J.K. Rowling‘s hit play will open at Lyric Theatre on Broadway in Spring 2018, producers Sonia Friedman and Colin Callender announced Wednesday (November 30).
The theater currently hosts Cirque du Soleil’s Paramour, which will finish up this April to clear the way for drastic renovations.
Harry Potter and the Cursed Child – set 19 years after the last Harry Potter book ended – is directed by John Tiffany and based on an original story by Jack Thorne.
According to a statement, “the remodeled Lyric will include a smaller auditorium redesigned to the specifications of the Harry Potter and the Cursed Child team, as well as an adapted proscenium and stage that can house designer Christine Jones’ glorious set without swamping or compromising director John Tiffany’s brilliant staging. The spacious front of house environment will also be transformed to optimize the atmosphere and audience experience.”
