Seven of the original Harry Potter and the Cursed Child cast members are coming back for the Broadway run, and tickets are going on sale in October!
The Cursed Child is finally coming to America next year, and the return of the original stars is sure to cause extra excitement. We saw their very first preview performance on London’s West End last summer and adored their portrayals.
The returning actors are: Jamie Parker (Harry Potter), Noma Dumezweni (Hermione Granger) and Paul Thornley (Ron Weasley) with Poppy Miller (Ginny Potter), Sam Clemmett (Albus Potter), Alex Price (Draco Malfoy) and Anthony Boyle (Scorpius Malfoy).
Preview performances will begin March 2018, and the show will officially kick off on April 22, 2018.
They will be joined by David Abeles, Brian Abraham, Shirine Babb, Jess Barbagallo, Stephen Bradbury, Lauren Nicole Cipoletti, Joshua De Jesus, Jessie Fisher, Richard Gallagher, Susan Heyward, Geraldine Hughes, Edward James Hyland, Byron Jennings, Katie Kreisler, Joey LaBrasca, Andrew Long, Kathryn Meisle, Angela Reed, Dave Register, Adeola Role, James Romney, Malika Samuel, Alanna Saunders, David St. Louis, Stuart Ward, Madeline Weinstein, Alex Weisman and Benjamin Wheelwright playing a variety of characters. The cast will also include four children who will alternate two roles.
The Cursed Child on Broadway will be working to ensure that bots don’t snap up the tickets. Registration to be eligible to order tickets will run from October 1 – 5, with tickets going on sale October 12. Pottermore says this is the first time a Broadway show is using the Ticketmaster Verified Fan program.
One caveat: Registration does not guarantee you’ll be able to purchase tickets. According to the official website:
You will not be able to buy tickets unless you register and receive an access code. However, please note that because of anticipated demand, registering does not guarantee receipt of an access code, and receiving an access code does not guarantee there will be tickets remaining when you try to purchase. The selection process will be randomized to ensure access to tickets is as fair as possible and to protect our customers from bots and ticket scalpers.
So, have your friends and family register too to increase your chances.
