Why See Harry Potter and the Cursed Child?

On Sale Now!

Winner of nine Olivier Awards

The latest chapter in the Harry Potter saga is coming to Broadway! Transferring over from a hugely successful run in London's West End, The Cursed Child is a brand new Harry Potter story, co-created for the stage by JK Rowling and Bafta-winning screenwriter and playwright Jack Thorne.

London's award winning cast will travel over with the show, including Jamie Parker as Harry Potter, Noma Dumezweni as Hermione, Paul Thornley as Ron and Sam Clements and Anthony Boyle as new generation Albus and Scoripus.

The play follows the fortunes of the original trio from the books, who are just beginning to settle into middle-age when the past comes back to haunt them. A whole new generation of Potter characters is also introduced, with Harry and Ginny's son Albus departing to Hogwarts for the very first time.

Leaving London critics impressed and fans bowled over, The Cursed Child recaptures the magic of the books, while crafting a totally unique world of its own. The story is brought to life with an intelligent script, wondrous costumes and a whole Defence Against the Dark Arts class worth of great theatrical special effects. The wish of every Potter fan to find out what happens after the final line of The Deathly Hallows has just been granted!

What Is Cursed Child About?

The producers of The Cursed Child want every Potter fan heading into the play to be surprised by its twists and turns, so we won't reveal too much. We can say that Harry, Ron and Hermoine are now all in their late 30s, married with kids and respectfully employed. Harry and Ginny's son Albus is just starting his first term at Hogwarts, yet his father's reputation hangs heavy around his neck, and he resents being only known as the son of The Boy Who Lived. Yet when sinister forces from Harry's past reemerge into the world, Albus must embrace the Potter legacy for the battles to come...

Did You Know?

The script for The Cursed Child was released as a book on July 31, 2016. The importance of the date? It's JK Rowling's and Harry Potter's birthday!

What we thought

Magical ENTHRALLING incredible

Never have I walked out of a theatre feeling more elated, exhausted and entertained... it really is that good!

Were it not for the fact us Muggles know magic is not real, Jack Thorne, JKR and John Tiffany could have fooled me, because what they have created in this thrilling theatrical marvel is truly enchanting. Never have I walked out of a theatre feel
