Broadway: “Harry Potter and the Cursed Child” Returns in November as One Show Not Two, And Maybe a Little Shorter


Big Broadway news: “Harry Potter and the Cursed Child” is returning in November.

But this time, it won’t be two different plays. The two parts will be combined as one. It will be less expensive, and maybe a little shorter.

The main thing is, in this post-pandemic world, it’s just one ticket and not two. The same magic, effects, and wonderment. But all in one sitting.

Personally, I can’t wait to see it again. But what a thrill not to have two three hour chunks to deal with. The producers have been very wise.

But if you go in London or Australia, the two parter remains. This is only for New York and San Francisco.

Stay tuned for more details.
