Perhaps the most eagerly anticipated play in recent Broadway history, the 9-time Olivier Award-winning West End hit Harry Potter and the Cursed Child - Parts One and Two has finally made the trip across the pond and has opened its doors to crowds of excited muggles in New York City!
Cursed Child is the official eighth story in the Harry Potter franchise and the first to be officially presented on stage. The events of Cursed Child take place nineteen years after those of the final J.K. Rowling novel "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows" and the production features dazzling illusions, bringing the Wizarding World to life before your very eyes, as well as seven of the original London stars reprising their roles on Broadway.
We are obliged to #KeepTheSecrets in terms of the jaw-dropping stage magic, courtesy of the genius of Jamie Harrison, but we can assure you there won't be any disappointments. Yes, the theatre may not have the advantage of green screens and post-production special effects, so common in the Harry Potter movies, but on the other hand, Cursed Child is designed with theatricality in mind. From Steven Hoggett's spell-binding choreography, which additionally helps to render scene changes and character entrances seamless, to John Tiffany's wildly innovative directorial choices in scenes involving the Hogwarts Express or the events of the Tri-Wizard Tournament, Cursed Child is unapologetically and masterfully a piece of theatre, first and foremost.
Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is presented in two parts at Broadway's Lyric Theatre and is a must-see for Potterheads the world over!
