The Tony-winning Broadway production of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child will mark Back to Hogwarts—the day when Harry Potter fans around the world celebrate Hogwarts Express departing from King's Cross Station for the start of a new term at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry—September 1 with a special ticket offer.
When the box office opens September 1 at 10 AM at the Lyric, the first 50 tickets for that evening’s performance will be sold in person only for
$9.75, a nod to Platform 9 and 3/4, where students board the Hogwarts
Express. There is a limit of two tickets per person. There will also be
special gifts and giveaways for those in line that morning.
Those in line at 10 AM who don’t get the special Platform 9 and 3/4 pricing will be able to buy tickets at the box office at the $40 “Friday Forty” price level for the same September 1 performance.
The Broadway cast currently features Steve Haggard as Harry Potter with Angela Reed as Ginny Potter and Joel Meyers as their son Albus Potter. David Abeles and Jenny Jules play Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger, respectively, and Maya Olivia Thomas plays their daughter Rose Granger-Weasley. Aaron Bartz is Draco Malfoy, Erik Christopher Peterson is his son Scorpius Malfoy, and Imani Jade Powers plays Delphi Diggory.
