Missed getting tickets to the Broadway production of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child? Producers have some good news for you.
New Batch of Tickets
Harry Potter and the Cursed Child producers are releasing a new set of tickets to their highly anticipated Broadway production.
"We are eager to make more tickets available for Harry Potter and the Cursed Child on Broadway as soon as possible," said producers Sonia Friedman and Colin Callender.
To see the further adventures of Harry, Ron, Hermione, Ginny, and their children, fans must sign up for the Ticketmaster Verified Fan registration. The Harry Potter and the Cursed Child production team has made it their mission and their preference to have fans buy tickets than scalpers or automated internet bots.
"As producers, we want to do everything possible within current New York state laws to protect our tickets and ticket buyers---especially since we have an unusually large amount of tickets at exceptionally low prices," Said the producers.
West End Success
Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is heading to Broadway as it continues to shake up London's theatre district: the West End. The West End production earned nine Olivier awards, which are the British equivalent of the Tony Awards. Oliver award-winning actors Jamie Parker (Harry Potter), Noma Dumezweni (Hermione Granger), and Anthony Boyle (Scorpius Malfoy) are expected to reprise their award-winning roles in the United States. Original cast members such as Paul Thornley (Ron Weasley), Poppy Miller (Ginny Potter), Alex Price (Draco Malfoy), Sam Clemmett (Albus Severus), and Esther Smith (Delphi Diggory) are also expected to join the U.S. production.
Video Game Delights
In addition to the two-part play coming to the United States in 2018, Harry Potter fans can look forward to playing two mobile video games that have received the franchise's beloved creator, J.K. Rowling's blessing.
Video game developer Jam City's Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery is expected to transport fans to Hogwarts in the 1980s, where players will attend classes such as Potions and interact with classic characters such as Dumbledore, Hagrid, and Snape. Meanwhile, Niantic Labs, the company behind Pokémon Go, is expected to bring gamers to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter in Harry Potter: Wizards Unite. Players will be learning spells and face off against dark wizards and witches in public.
Harry Potter and the Cursed Child takes place years after the events of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows and follows Harry Potter's middle child, Albus Severus Potter's, first year at Hogwarts. The two-part play is expected to begin previews on March 16, 2018, and officially open on April 22 at New York City's the Lyric Theatre.
