Harry Potter and the Cursed Child transfigured to one show for Broadway return

Harry Potter and the Cursed Child will reopen on Broadway in November, but it will be a different production to the show pre-pandemic.

Producers have announced the play’s two parts are being merged into one for the show’s return.

The single play version will also open in San Francisco at the beginning of 2022.

It hasn’t been revealed how long the new “reimagined” version of the play will be.

Producers Sonia Friedman and Colin Callender said: “We are delighted to announce that Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, which since its triumphant opening in New York and San Francisco has seen record breaking numbers of people spellbound by the wizardry on stage, will be returning in North America in a new, re-imagined version that audiences can see in one afternoon or evening.

“Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is already the longest-running two-part play in Broadway history. The new version of the play has the potential to thrill audiences for many years to come.”

There’s been no word about changes to the London production.
