Initial casting announced for Harry Potter and the Cursed Child on Broadway

Read on to learn the whole Harry Potter and the Cursed Child Broadway cast.

The Broadway run of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child will feature seven familiar faces from the original West End cast.

The full cast has been revealed for the upcoming Broadway production of the two-part Harry Potter play, with the original trio - Jamie Parker (Harry Potter), Noma Dumezweni (Hermione Granger), and Paul Thornley (Ron Weasley) - all set to reprise their roles in NY. Additional secondary characters are still being fleshed out.




Noma Dumezweni, who plays Hermione Granger, and Antony Boyle, who plays Scorpius Malfoy, both won Olivier Awards for their performances in the show. Cursed Child NYC tweeted a series of huge announcements earlier today regarding the Broadway cast and ticket sales. It also received recognition as Best New Play, Jamie Parker for Best Actor, Anthony Boyle for Best Supporting Actor role, and John Tiffany as Best Director at the annual awards ceremony in London. Preview shows will begin in NY in March with the play officially opening April 22, 2018. Tickets go on sale October 12.

Harry Potter And The Cursed Child has garnered 22 major theatre awards in the United Kingdom, having earlier this year become the most awarded production in the history of the Olivier Awards with Mastercard, claiming a record-breaking nine awards earlier this year including Best New Play and Best Director. His youngest son, Albus, is struggling with his family legacy.

The production is based on the story written by Rowling alongside Jack Thorne, who scripted the play, and John Tiffany, who will direct. Tickets for the play will be available and on sale later this year but it is still unsure as to how long will it be played at the Lyric theater.
