The Tony and Olivier Award-winning “Harry Potter and the Cursed Child” will reopen on Broadway. The show is preparing to open in other places in North America, after a slight restoration of charm. The Tony and Olivier winning play was initially divided into two parts; the newly staged version will also travel to other parts of North America.
After COVID – 19
Once the show recovers from the coronavirus interruption, it will be presented as one show instead of two parts. The playwright Jack Thorne and director John Tiffany and the original playwright J.K. Rowling said that they have been making condensed versions because the theater is still dark. The newly staged version will begin at the Lyric Theater on November 16. Meanwhile, Curran’s performance in San Francisco will begin on January 11, 2022. And the Canadian premiere will be held at the Ed Mirvish Theatre in Toronto in May.
“In view of the challenges of re-stage and hosting a two-part “Harry Potter and the Cursed Child” show in the United States, as well as the commercial challenges faced by the theater and tourism industry due to the global shutdown. It’s great to be able to advance the new version of the show, allowing viewers to sit eight times a week and enjoy the full cursed kid’s adventure,” the producers Sonia Friedman and Colin Callander in a collective statement Say.
Harry Potter and the Cursed Child to reopen on Broadway
Broadway production quickly became a hot ticket and box office leader after its opening in the spring of 2018. The production capacity remained at around 100%. The total weekly box office eventually declined because the average ticket price was less than $100. An underlying factor: the two-part structure of the performance, the time commitment created is twice (or even longer) that of most family-friendly theater products. Nonetheless, the ubiquitous temptation of the Wizarding World helped the show win the title of the highest-grossing non-musical drama within less than a year of its launch.
Path to glory
The rest of the world will continue to host the original two-part version. The performance is currently in Melbourne, Australia; the flagship West End production is scheduled to reopen on October 14th; the German production will resume preview in Hamburg on December 1. Tickets for the Broadway show will go on sale to the public on July 12, and the San Francisco box office will open on July 21. The cast of all three North American bows will be confirmed later.
