Harry Potter and the Cursed Child on Broadway Background
Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is a new production on Broadway that has already has a proven track record of critical acclaim in London. The show comes to Broadway to delight audiences of the Harry Potter books and the movies, as well people who are not familiar with either. Directed by John Tiffany (Once), this show comes to life on Broadway in the re conceived Lyric Theatre, which has transformed into a more intimate venue to accommodate this exciting production.
Divided into two separate plays, Parts One and Two, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is the first brand new story by J.K. Rowling about Harry Potter in almost a decade. Taking place nineteen years after the events in the first novel, Harry Potters and the Deathly Hallows, this theatrical production follows Harry James Potter, who is an employee at the Ministry of Magic, along with his son, Albus Severus Potter, as a dark chain of events unfolds.
Featuring a cast of over 30 individuals, the two-part show can be seen either back to back on the same day, or over the course of two separate days. The show is decidedly not a musical (at the behest of JK Rowling), as it does not feature any singing, although there is a great deal of music in the show. The show has many lower priced ticket options and has seen large numbers of children and younger adults coming to the show who have never seen a Broadway show before, often as high as 30% of the audience. It is this demographic that has been used to paying $10 for a book or $15 to see the movie, that would find it hard to pay $100 for the show, so Harry Potter offers many lower priced ticket options to draw them, including a lottery, standing room only and Verified Fan ticket sales that sell for $25 per ticket.
What’s Harry Potter and the Cursed Child Like?
Harry Potter is a timeless character whose engrossing magical travails have delighted those of all ages for many years through the magic of the movies. In an entirely new production, based on the first original story about Harry Potter in almost a decade, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is not a shabby remake of a novel or one of the films. Rather, it takes the concept of Harry Potter to the next level. In this story, Harry is a grown up with a son of his own, and together, father and son take on a series of adventures that are as magical and imaginative as any of the Harry Potter tales. In a production by the visionary director John Tiffany, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is a fantastically conceived show in the Lyric Theatre, which has been entirely altered for this production. The show is set in two parts, which means that fans need to see both shows to see how it all turns out.

Is Harry Potter and the Cursed Child Good for Kids?
The show is most suitable for those aged 10 and above. Children under the age of 4 are not permitted in the theatre. The producers recommend that anyone coming to see this show would benefit by reading the synopsis of the fourth book in the series, at the very least. Having said that, the show does give enough exposition for adults who are unfamiliar with the whole Harry Potter phenomenon to play catch up pretty quickly.
