Why See Harry Potter and the Cursed Child?
Coming Fall 2019!
Accio trophies: winner of six 2018 Tony Awards!
The latest chapter in the Harry Potter saga is coming to the West Coast! Transferring over from a hugely successful run on London's West End AND on Broadway, The Cursed Child is a brand new Harry Potter story, co-created for the stage by JK Rowling and Bafta-winning screenwriter and playwright Jack Thorne. Experience twice the magic with this incredible production as the story takes place across two separate parts!
Leaving London critics impressed and fans bowled over, The Cursed Child recaptures the magic of the books, while crafting a totally unique world of its own. The story is brought to life with an intelligent script, wondrous costumes and a whole Defence Against the Dark Arts class worth of great theatrical special effects. The wish of every Potter fan to find out what happens after the final line of The Deathly Hallows has just been granted!
What Is Cursed Child About?
The producers of The Cursed Child want every Potter fan heading into the play to be surprised by its twists and turns, so we won't reveal too much. We can say that Harry, Ron and Hermoine are now all in their late 30s, married with kids and respectfully employed. Harry and Ginny's son Albus is just starting his first term at Hogwarts, yet his father's reputation hangs heavy around his neck, and he resents being only known as the son of The Boy Who Lived. Yet when sinister forces from Harry's past reemerge into the world, Albus must embrace the Potter legacy for the battles to come...

Filled with rap, pop, R&B and jazz, it's marvellously dense, visually and aurally, and dramatic. And though they flow seamlessly, the scenes-slash-songs, both personal and political are works of art unto themselves.
