Harry Potter and the Cursed Child goes to New York in 2018

November 18, 2016

Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, the stage play that debuted in London this past July, will be in New York City in two years. The information has been filtered by Baz Bamigboye, the entertainment columnist who has broken news related to the stage play in the past.

John Tiffany, the play director, is in New York right now checking out theatres where the play could be performed.  It seems it would take a year to condition the place for the theatrical piece. If everything goes right, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child will start performances in New York in 2018.

It seems a happy day for the Wizarding Community in New York. Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them, setted in New York City, is screening around the world as from today.

Updated (December 1st) – Today, producers Sonia Friedman and Colin Callender confirmed Harry Potter and the Cursed Child will debut on Broadway in the spring of 2018 at Lyric Theatre. “I’m delighted we’re one step closer in bringing ‘Harry Potter and the Cursed Child’ to Broadway and very excited by the proposed plans,” says J.K. Rowling. You can read more in this article by the New York Post.
