“Harry Potter and the Cursed Child” picks up 19 years after the events of “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows” and follows Harry in his next chapter as an employee of the Ministry of Magic. His younger son Albus Severus Potter is about to follow in his father’s footsteps at Hogwarts.
When the show reaches America, it will be performed at the Lyric theater in New York. Stay tuned for ticketing info as it becomes available.
