Harry Potter and the Cursed Child in New York CityDoesn't matter if you are a Potterhead or a casual theater-goer, this play will not leave you untouched.
If you believed the final of The Deathly Hallows had been the end of Potteriana, you were wrong. The magic world is back, now on Broadway stage.
Harry Potter is in his late 30s now, married with kids, working hard for the Ministry of Magic. Life seems all settled down until his and Ginny Weasley's youngest son Albus heedlessly brings back the past from where it had to stay. Now Harry, Ron, and Hermione need to confront the evil just the way they had been doing it during childhood and adolescence. The only difference is that now they have their children beside, and those have their own (very significant!) problems to solve.
The Cursed Child is a brand-new play by Bafta-winning screenwriter and playwright Jack Thorne. The story was written under the guidance of JK Rowling - a quality mark here for you.
The play has been a triumph in West End and now is travelling round the globe. In the Lyric Theatre, it is performed is two parts, intended to be seen in order either on the same day (matinee and evening) or on two consecutive evenings.
In case you are concerned about how it could be possible to bring all the wizardry from screen to stage: the production can boast of all the top technological tricks. So very soon after the curtain is risen you will believe you are in Hogwarts.
