Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, a new play by Jack Thorne based on an original new story by J.K. Rowling, Jack Thorne, and John Tiffany opens on Broadway Sunday, April 22, 2018.
Written by Olivier and BAFTA Award winner Jack Thorne and directed by Olivier and Tony Award® winner John Tiffany, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is the eighth story in the Harry Potter series and the first official Harry Potter story to be presented on stage, bringing together some of the most exciting talent working in the theatre today.
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.
