Producers of the award-winning West End play Harry Potter and the Cursed Child has announced via Pottermore that they plan on bringing the show to Broadway at the Lyric Theater in New York in the spring of 2018.

After its success at London’s Palace Theater this past summer, there have been rumors of bringing the play to Broadway and now with major theater owner, Ambassador Theatre Group (ATG), this is going to happen!

The Lyric Theatre will be completely remodeled and reconfigured from a 1,900 seat theater into a more intimate 1,500 seat auditorium to accommodate the dramatic look and feel of Cursed Child.

 

Producer Sonia Friedman said in a statement, “When the redesigned Lyric was presented to us as an idea and what the possibilities could be, we re-thought the whole thing and totally fell in love with the notion of a theatre being created especially for the Cursed Child, overseen by designer Christine and our director John Tiffany. We are still subject to planning, but assuming we get the go ahead, we will have the theatre of our dreams that will be intimate enough for a drama, yet big enough for us to follow in the footsteps of the London production and continue to provide low priced tickets throughout the auditorium.”

Right now, they are in the early stages of planning and have not released any other details.
