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. It is the eighth story in the Harry Potter series and the first official Harry Potter story to be presented on stage.

This epic two-part event brings one of the most iconic characters of our time to life on stage – now as a husband and father of three – with his friends still by his side. Cursed Child sends the imagination soaring with awe-inspiring theatrical wizardry – the likes of which have never been experienced until now. Whether you’re already a fan or new to Harry Potter, this production will leave you completely spellbound. Rolling Stone calls it, “The stuff of legend. It will inspire wonder in theatergoers and Potterheads alike.” And Entertainment Weekly declares, “It redefines the possibilities of theatre. Broadway will never be the same.”

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 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. Don’t miss this deeply human story that reveals how friendship and family can ultimately bring us together to conquer our greatest fears and foes.

This play is intended to be seen in order on the same day (Wednesday, Saturday, and Sunday matinee and evening) or on two consecutive evenings (Thursday and Friday).
