It is almost impossible to get tickets to the West End hit, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child. Fans of the JK Rowling franchise have been clamoring for tickets, but the show is said to be sold-out until 2018!
But great news for Potterheads everywhere! According to Pottermore.com, producers Sonia Friedman and Colin Callendar are in talks to open on Broadway’s Lyric Theatre in the spring of 2018.
The theater will be “…completely remodeled and reconfigured from a 1,900 seat theatre into a more intimate 1,500 seat auditorium to accommodate the dramatic look and feel of Cursed Child.”
