The Broadway will play “Harry Potter and the Cursed Child” on stage, and it has just selected the cast. It turns out that some actors were born for certain roles in their life. Several British artists from the original London show have been reprised for the New York version as well.
The London Representation of “Harry Potter and the Cursed Child” Received Great Appraisal
Four years ago, the Harry Potter fan world received some exciting news. There was going to be an eighth book released almost a decade after the series ended with the defeat of Voldemort. However, this time the manuscript was actually the rehearsal script for a theater show that features the main characters as grown-ups and with glamorous careers.
Even though the story follows the beloved wizards into their adulthood, J. K. Rowling revealed that the book would contain new fragments of Harry Potter’s childhood. The Broadway will finally start working on this script.
With the script ready, the New York production was ready to meet the actors that will bring some of the most popular characters in the fictional world to life on stage. Surprisingly, seven of the artistic crew are actually members of the original London cast. Some of them are award winners Noma Dumezweni, Jamie Parker, and Anthony Boyle.
This trio proved to be a winning mix for the London production. The stage representation of the recent chapter in the life of wizard Harry Potter mesmerized both audiences and critics from its premiere night last summer. As a consequence, the production was awarded several reputed prizes including a record number of nine Oliviers.
Tickets Will Be Available on October 12 only For Those Who Submit Registration Between October 1 and 5
The Broadway version is going to feature Sam Clemmett as young Harry and Ginny’s son, Albus. Paul Thornley will play Ron, Poppy Miller will be in the shoes of Ginny, and Alex Price will be Harry’s old nemesis, Draco Malfoy. Kathryn Meisle, David Abeles, and Byron Jennings are going to be among the rest of the 28 actors who are new to “Harry Potter and the Cursed Child.”
Now that the artists can start working on the script, the enthusiasts for this show can set a reminder of the premiere night on April 22. The play will unravel on the stage of the Lyric Theater. Tickets will be available as of October 12 but only after a registration in the period between October 1 and 5. This additional process will guard the joy of getting a ticket from the menace of bots and scalpers.
