MOST AWARDED SHOW OF THE BROADWAY SEASON

Harry Potter And The Cursed Child




The Broadway premiere of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is officially the most awarded show of the Broadway season. The production won six Tony Awards including Best Play at the 72nd annual ceremony at Radio City Music Hall in New York City last night. It also took honors in Directing for John Tiffany, Set Design for Christine Jones, Costume Design for Katrina Lindsay, Lighting Design for Neil Austin and Sound Design for Gareth Fry. Tickets are available now for all performances. A new play in two parts, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is playing at the Lyric Theatre (214 West 43rd Street, NYC). For more information, visit www.HarryPotterThePlay.com.



In total, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child has won 25 major awards this season with six Tony Awards including Best Play, five Drama Desk Awards, six Outer Critics Circle Awards including Outstanding New Broadway Play, the Drama League Award for Outstanding Production of a Broadway or off-Broadway Play, the Broadway.com Audience Choice Award for Favorite New Play, four BroadwayWorld’s Theater Fans' Choice Awards including Best Play and two Theatre World Awards.



Based on an original new story by J.K. Rowling, Jack Thorne and John Tiffany, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is a new play by Jack Thorne, directed by John Tiffany. The production is one play presented in two parts. Both parts are intended to be seen in order on the same day (matinee and evening) or on two consecutive evenings, or each part can be seen separately.



Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is the eighth story in the Harry Potter series and the first official Harry Potter story to be presented on stage. The critically acclaimed production received its world premiere in July 2016 at the Palace Theatre in London where it continues to play to sold out houses.



In addition to its Broadway honors, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child has won 24 major theatre awards in the UK and is the most awarded play in the history of Britain’s Olivier Awards, winning a record-breaking nine awards including Best New Play and Best Director.



It was always difficult being Harry Potter and it isn’t much easier now that he is an overworked employee of the Ministry of Magic, a husband, and the father of three school-age children.



While Harry grapples with a past that refuses to stay where it belongs, his youngest son Albus must struggle with the weight of a family legacy he never wanted. As past and present fuse ominously, both father and son learn the uncomfortable truth: sometimes, darkness comes from unexpected places.

HARRY POTTER AND THE CURSED CHILD ON BROADWAY

Harry Potter And The Cursed Child




Producers Sonia Friedman and Colin Callender announced today that the next release of tickets for the Broadway premiere of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child will take place in February 2018.



On February 7, 2018 beginning at 11:00 AM ET, tickets at all price points for performances from March 16, 2018 to March 9, 2019 will be made available in a pre-sale via Ticketmaster Verified Fan®, a process that seeks to verify that ticket buyers are not bots or scalpers. Further tickets will be released as and when available from February 8, 2018 through the official website www.HarryPotterThePlay.com and Ticketmaster.com.



The Verified Fan® registration period for the pre-sale will be announced soon. Those who completed the registration process for the first ticket release in October will need to register again in order to be eligible to receive an Access Code.



All those who register and are identified as genuine ticket buyers, not bots or scalpers, will be equally eligible to be randomly selected to receive an Access Code. The selection process is randomized to ensure access to tickets is as fair as possible and is in no way influenced by a patron’s Ticketmaster purchase history. Those who receive an Access Code will have the opportunity to purchase tickets on a first-come, first-served basis on February 7, 2018.



“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. “As previously announced, there are over 300 seats throughout the theater at each performance priced at $40 or under per part, including 150 seats at $20 per part. As such, we’re working with the Ticketmaster’s Verified Fan® system to ensure as many tickets at all price points get directly into the hands of genuine theatregoers, rather than bots or scalpers who will resell at inflated prices. As producers, we want to do everything possible within current New York state law to protect our tickets and ticketbuyers – especially since we have an unusually large amount of tickets at exceptionally low prices. We also recognize a need for flexibility to allow for traditional sales outside of the registration process, and so this next Verified Fan release will be followed by a general release of tickets from February 8.”



Harry Potter and the Cursed Child will begin preview performances on March 16, 2018 and officially open on April 22, 2018 in New York at the fully renovated Lyric Theatre (214 West 43rd Street, NYC).
