The West End production of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child celebrates its first anniversary in a special look-back video. The two-part play, now bound for Broadway, began previews June 7, 2016, at London’s Palace Theatre ahead of a July 30 official opening.
Set several years after the final book in J.K. Rowling’s celebrated series, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child features a script by author Rowling, Jack Thorne, and John Tiffany, who also helms the production.
The show won a record nine Olivier Awards this spring, in addition to the Evening Standard Award for Best Play, three Critics’ Circle Awards, and more.
As previously announced, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child will arrive on Broadway in 2018. The show is set to open at the Lyric Theatre April 22.
