Harry Potter and the Cursed Child on Broadway
If you’re a fan of Harry Potter and Broadway, you’re in luck. Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is coming to Broadway with an all-star cast. Seven of the new faces for the Broadway musical are coming straight from the West End Company cast, so we are expecting the show to be a hit.
The actors who are reprising their roles are supported by the Actors’ Equity Association. Jamie Parker (Harry Potter), Paul Thornley (Ron Weasley) with Poppy Miller (Ginny Potter), and Noma Dumezweni (Hermione Granger), Sam Clemmett (Albus Potter), Anthony Boyle (Scorpius Malfoy), and Alex Price (Draco Malfoy) are the actors coming from the West End.
“We have assembled an extraordinary cast for Broadway,” said director John Tiffany. “Our Cursed Child family is growing with 28 brilliant new actors bringing their unique talents to our production.” Some of the new actors who will star on Broadway include David Abeles, Shirine Babb, Brian Abraham, Jess Barbagallo, Stephen Bradbury, and Lauren Nicole Cipoletti.
This production was a hit last summer and won a record breaking nine Oliviers, as well as trophies for the main characters (Harry, Ron, Hermione, and Draco) of the film. It is a new play by Jack Thorne and directed by John Tiffany. The two-part story is an original story by J.K Rowling and is her eighth story in the extraordinary wizardry saga.
The musical is set to be produced by Sonia Friedman Productions, Colin Callender and Harry Potter Theatrical Productions. Though the official premiere date is April 22 at the Lyric Theater, there will be preview shows playing in March. Production tickets will officially go on sale Oct. 12 via Ticketmaster Verified Fan. The Broadway production, Harry Potter and The Cursed Child, will be the first ever to use the Verified Fan program. This program supposedly defends ticket purchasers from ticket scalpers and bots.
We solemnly swear that it’s going to be a production you don’t want to miss.
