‘HARRY POTTER AND THE CURSED CHILD’ Celebrates Five Magical Years on Broadway!

The Tony Award-winning, record-breaking smash hit, HARRY POTTER AND THE CURSED CHILD, the most successful play in Broadway history, is set to mark its 5th anniversary later this month at the Lyric Theatre in Times Square with a week-long series of celebratory events leading up to the official anniversary on Saturday 22 April 2023.

HARRY POTTER AND THE CURSED CHILD opened to critical acclaim on Broadway on Sunday 22 April 2018 and went on to win six Tony Awards including Best Play.

The production has the unique distinction of being named by the Guinness World Records as the highest-grossing non-musical play in Broadway history with over $270 million total sales and over 2 million tickets sold.

Based on an original new story by J.K. Rowling, Jack Thorne and John Tiffany, HARRY POTTER AND THE CURSED CHILD is written by Jack Thorne and directed by John Tiffany 

The magical experience of seeing the show begins for the audience the moment they enter the theatre’s lobby. Fans can interact with special AR installations from the tech wizards of Meta, including bringing a portrait, a Patronus, and even the Enchanted Ceiling to life by scanning special QR codes throughout the lobby. They can also feast like Hogwarts students with special magical treats from Chocolate Frogs to Bertie Bott’s Every Flavour Beans and wash it all down with a Butterbeer. It’s an experience like no other on Broadway!
