Harry Potter And The Cursed Child Coming To Broadway

Not content to let Newt Scamander have all the fun, Harry Potter is about to take New York City by storm.

Pottermore, the official site of author J.K. Rowling, confirmed that the London stage play Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is prepping to take the show to Broadway. According to The New York Times, the production would take place at the massive Lyric Theatre. The 1,900-capacity venue (the same one that hosted the 2010 musical Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark) will reportedly remove 400 seats to make the show more intimate.

The official eighth story in the Harry Potter series, Cursed Child picks up right where The Deathly Hallows leaves off. Set 19 years after Harry's final battle with Voldemort, it follows him as a grown-up employee of the Ministry of Magic, along with his son Albus, a student at Hogwarts.

None of the actors from the movies appear in the London production, but no new casting details have been announced. Of course, Daniel Radcliffe has been pretty fond of live theater in recent years, performing in the Broadway revival of How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying and acting (in the buff) in Equus. Might he be tempted to return to his trademark role? We kind of doubt it, but it would definitely be an amazing development.
