The famed Princess Theatre plays exclusive host to Harry Potter and the Cursed Child. It’s the first city in the world – outside of London and New York – to host such a spectacular production. The Marriner family, who own the Princess Theatre, are reported to have spent $6.5 million in upgrading the 165-year-old theatre.
Based on an original new story by J.K Rowling it is the most awarded production in the history of Britain's Olivier Awards, winning a record breaking nine awards including Best New Play and Best Director.
Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is the eighth story in the Harry Potter series and the first official Harry Potter to be presented on stage. It picks up where the epilogue of the final novel in the series, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, left off; 19 years after the Battle of Hogwarts. An unlikely friendship forms between Harry's son Albus (Sean Rees-Wemyss) and Scorpius Malfoy (William McKenna), son of Harry's former nemesis, with Gareth Reeves playing the adult Harry, Gyton Grantley as Ron Weasley and Paula Arundell as Hermione Granger.
The production is one play presented in two parts. Both parts are intended to be seen in order on the same day (matinee and evening) or on two consecutive evenings, although each part can also be seen separately. You will be able to purchase up to six tickets for Parts One and Two per transaction. Further information is available here
Every week, 40 tickets for every performance the following week will be released via TodayTix for some of the very best seats in the theatre at $40 per part, per ticket ($80 total). These tickets are known as ‘The Friday Forty’. Learn more about The Friday Forty here.
