Performances of the London play are currently sold out through May 2017, although a few tickets are available through a weekly lottery, and late-release tickets sometimes go on sale. The new tickets coming out next week will be for performances from next spring to mid-December 2017, the New York Times reports.
Harry Potter and the Cursed Child takes place 19 years after the last book, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. The two-part play, which can be watched in a day or over the course of two days, is based on a story by J.K. Rowling, Jack Thorne and John Tiffany, and the play is written by Thorne. The story focuses on Harry Potter‘s second son, Albus Severus Potter, who struggles with his family legacy.
The production began previews in June, and it officially opened this week. The play’s script will be published this weekend on Harry Potter’s birthday, July 31. Here are six things you can only learn from seeing Harry Potter and the Cursed Child.
