More information about Harry Potter and the Cursed Child on Broadway

The six-time Tony Award-winning Harry Potter and the Cursed Child has been enchanting Broadway audiences since 2018. Now, the formerly two-part production has been newly transfigured into a one-night event. Get Harry Potter and the Cursed Child tickets on TodayTix.

The Harry Potter and the Cursed Child play picks up right where the last Harry Potter film left off: on Platform 9 3/4, where Harry Potter, now married to Ginny Weasley and 19 years past the Battle of Hogwarts, is seeing his son Albus Severus off to his first year at the wizarding school. Albus follows in his father’s footsteps, sharing a train car with a Weasley (rather, a Granger-Weasley, Hermione and Ron’s son Rose), but also meets Scorpius Malfoy, Draco’s son.

Whereas Harry and Draco were rivals at Hogwarts, Albus and Scorpius become fast friends. A few years into their time at school, the elderly Amos Diggory, the father of a boy who died while Harry was at Hogwarts, asks Harry to bring him back. Harry refuses, so Albus and Scorpius take on the challenge. They’re launched into a time-bending adventure through the Wizarding World, and as they travel deeper and deeper into the past, their parents soon go after them. Family tensions, old magic artifacts, and dark forces arise — as do some characters that Harry and the others thought were gone for good.

The script for Harry Potter and the Cursed Child was also released as “the eighth Harry Potter book” on the eve of July 31, 2016, Harry Potter’s birthday. That same night, on July 30, the show played its very first performance in London. The premiere of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child in New York took place in March 2018, and the show went on to win six Tonys including Best Play. In December 2018, Cursed Child set a new record for highest weekly ticket sales by a play at $2.5 million. After the 2020-2021 Broadway shutdown, a new version of the play reopened on Broadway, this time in one 3.5-hour long production rather than two consecutive shows.

What to watch for

  • The Lyric Theatre underwent a total renovation specifically for Harry Potter and the Cursed Child. Patronuses and Harry Potter quotes are painted on the walls, the carpet is patterned with magical symbols, and a whole room of the lobby has been transfigured into a Harry Potter merchandise store where you can get house apparel, wands, and more.
  • The original London premiere of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child got 11 Olivier Award nominations, the most a play has ever received. After winning nine of them, the show set a record for most Olivier wins by a play too!
  • Chris Columbus, who directed the original Harry Potter movies, said in an interview that he’d be interested in directing a film adaptation of Cursed Child and bringing back Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson, and Rupert Grint to reprise their original roles as adults. What spell do we have to cast to make this happen?
  • Cursed Child transports Broadway audiences to the U.K. Wizarding World, but in J.K. Rowling’s universe, there’s a whole U.S. Wizarding World, too! The U.S. has its own magic academy called Ilvermorny, and the U.S. is the setting of the magical adventures in Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, the Harry Potter film spinoff series starring Eddie Redmayne as magic zoologist Newt Scamander.
  • Cursed Child uses tons of spellbinding special effects to bring the Wizarding World to life — but we can’t spoil what they are or how they work! You’ll have to see the magic for yourself.

Recommended for ages 8+. All persons entering the theatre, regardless of age, must have a ticket. Children under 5 are not permitted. Children under the age of 15 will not be admitted to the theatre without the accompaniment of an adult.
