If you thought watching a Harry Potter movie was exciting, well, just wait until you see a Harry Potter play. There’s a play called “Harry Potter and the Cursed Child” on stage in London, but not to worry—they’re looking to bring the production stateside.
In fact, several publications are reporting that the play will be coming to Broadway. According to the New York Times, nothing is “official,” but there are “exclusive talks” to open the play in New York City.
They’ve got the Lyric Theater in mind for a venue. But the theater will have to undergo some work to be suitable. The New York Times reports that producers Sonia Friedman and Colin Callender have said that they’re looking to scale back the space, taking it from 1,900 seats to 1,500.
We know—this is incredible news! But don’t start looking for tickets just yet. The play’s not due to hit the Broadway stage until 2018, according to the New York Post.
If you’re already hoping 2017 will fly by to make way for the opening curtain in 2018, you’re not the only one.
“I’m delighted we’re one step closer in bringing ‘Harry Potter and the Cursed Child’ to Broadway and very excited by the proposed plans,” J.K. Rowling told the Post.
When tickets do become available, however, expect them to go faster than you can say Hamilton. Because they’ve been selling like hot cakes in London.
London sales have exceeded $50 million, with 60,000 tickets selling out in just 15 minutes.
Wherever you are, a Harry Potter experience of this kind is not to be missed! We’re with you, fellow Harry Potter fans—2018 seriously can’t get here soon enough!
