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.

Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is inspired by J. K. Rowling's books and features all the main and fan-favorite characters from that series. The play, however, tells an entirely new story that picks up where the original series leaves off.
No, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is a one-part show that is 3 hours and 30 minutes long, including an intermission. The show was originally performed in two parts when it first opened, but following the Covid-19 pandemic shutdown of Broadway, the play reopened as a one-part event.
