From the producers: 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.
"Harry Potter and the Cursed Child" is the two-part follow up to J.K. Rowling’s massively popular series. Since the release of the first novel in 1997, the books have found immense popularity, critical acclaim, and commercial success worldwide. They have attracted a wide adult audience as well as younger readers, and are often considered cornerstones of modern young adult literature. The play officially premiered at the West End’s Palace Theatre in July 2016 and went on to win a record-breaking nine Olivier Awards, including Best New Play and Best Director.
Original London stars Jamie Parker, Noma Dumezweni, and Paul Thornley will reprise their performances as Harry, Hermione, and Ron, respectively. Additional members from the London staging to cross the pond are Anthony Boyle, who also won an Olivier for playing Scorpius Malfoy, as well as Poppy Miller as Ginny Potter, Sam Clemmett as Albus Potter, and Alex Price as Draco Malfoy. Tony-winner John Tiffany ("The Glass Menagerie," "Once") directs.
