LUMOS!!!! Hogwarts is back in session!!! It has just been announced that the Award winning smash hit Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is set to reopen on the Great Bright Way later this Fall. The magic will resume at Broadway’s Lyric Theatre beginning November 16th, 2021.
However, there has been a little change for the production when it returns….. A REDUCIO charm has been placed on the Wizarding World. The play will now be performed as 1 PART instead of its usual 2. It will be a complete brand new updated version reimagined for audiences to experience the full show 8 times a week.
Along with the Broadway company, the show’s sit-down production in San Francisco is set to launch January 11th, 2022 at the Curran Theatre. From there, the new Canadian production is set to bring that Live Theater magic to Toronto’s Ed Mirvish Theatre beginning in May of 2022. Both San Francisco and Toronto will also be doing the show in 1 PART.
The only companies that will still be doing the show in 2 PARTS is the show’s inaugural production in London’s West End (set to reopen at the Palace Theatre on October 14th, 2021), Hamburg, Germany (set to relaunch its previews on December 1st, 2021), and the show’s ongoing Australian company in Australia.
Who is excited for the magic to return?
Thoughts on this new updated HARRY POTTER?!!!
