The Broadway production of “Harry Potter and the Cursed Child” will return to the Lyric Theatre on November 16, with the former two-part play now cut down and to be performed in just one sitting eight times a week. Casting has not yet been announced.
The play, which is written by Jack Thorne and directed by John Tiffany, focuses on both the now-grown-up versions of the characters introduced in the novels by British author J.K. Rowling as well as their children.
The production, which first debuted on Broadway in April 2018, won six Tony Awards, including Best Play. Meanwhile, the Lyric Theatre underwent a multi-million dollar renovation in order to accommodate the show.
As previously reported by Cititour.com, a massive store devoted to all things Harry Potter opened earlier this month at Broadway and 22nd Street and has drawn enormous crowds ever since.
