According to Deadline, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is coming to the United States’ Broadway on April 22nd, 2018. It will be at the Lyric Theatre in New York City, tickets will be available on the ATG website, and any further details on the play will released in the coming months. The theatre is being renovated in preparation for the Cursed Child, as Cirque du Soleil had just finished up their performances there.
Despite the 11 nominations for Olivier Awards, more than any other British play, Cursed Child did not take well with the hardcore fans of the series. They felt the story was disjointed, the characters too shallow and not explored as much as they had the potential to be.
Some might say this is a result of the audience having grown out of the books by the time Cursed Child came out. The audience was Harry’s age, dealing with the drama and hard edges of mediocrity that adult life brings. Not that of a child just starting at Hogwarts all over again.
However, that does not mean you should not go see the play. It just means that there is really no use reading it until you’ve seen the play and you loved the play. To the hardcore fans out there, be assured that J.K. Rowling endorsed the Cursed Child but she did not write the whole of it. Cursed Child is still a well-written play, even if it is not exactly what fans wanted out a sequel to the series.
