Last year, “Harry Potter and the Cursed Child” premiered at Palace Theatre in London, leaving every city other than London Harry Potter-less. It was announced in May, however, that “Cursed Child” will be making its Broadway debut at the Lyric Theatre on April 22, 2018. And now we have a cast announcement: the lead cast from London will reprise their roles in New York.
The cast is as follows:
- Noma Dumezweni as Hermione Granger
- Jamie Parker as Harry Potter
- Paul Thornley as Ron Weasley
- Poppy Miller as Ginny Potter
- Sam Clemmett as Albus Potter
- Alex Price as Draco Malfoy
- Anthony Boyle as Scorpius Malfoy

“Cursed Child” is a two-part play that picks up the baton 19 years after “Deathly Hallows.” The story follows Harry Potter, now a Ministry of Magic employee, who must reckon with his past as his son, Albus Potter, begins at Hogwarts. Along the way, Albus forges an unlikely friendship with Scorpius Malfoy, Draco’s son.
You can register for tickets on Broadway starting October 1 at 10am right here.
