Harry Potter and the Cursed Child Sets West End Record for Advance Sale

News   Harry Potter and the Cursed Child Sets West End Record for Advance Sale
Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, the two-part new play co-created by J.K. Rowling, Jack Thorne and John Tiffany that tells an original eighth "Harry Potter" story, is reported to have already taken £20 million at the box office — just over a week after tickets went on sale to those who had registered for priority booking on the show's website.

After the first four months of performances — June 7-Sept. 18, 2016 — sold out within hours, the producers extended bookings through Jan. 8, 2017, then released tickets for further periods through April 30 and then May 27, 2017. 

According to a report in the Daily Mail, the production has now sold "close to £20 million worth of tickets six months before any cast member has set foot on stage — a West End record."

The producers are not officially releasing their figures, but according to the Daily Mail, "the amount mentioned was confirmed by several people with knowledge of the volume of seats sold since the box office opened." Unlike on Broadway, West End producers do not report their weekly box-office take publicly.
