Magic is returning to Broadway, which is great news for both wizards and muggles. Who doesn’t love Harry Potter movies? And yes, we are talking about Harry Potter and the Cursed Child here. One of the most popular from Harry Potter film series.
After a temporary closure due to the pandemic, performances of “Harry Potter and the Cursed Child” now resumes. At a popular Lyric Theatre on West 42nd Street on Friday. This will be the first harry potter movie to come out in a broadway.
The Broadway production of Jack Thorne’s play is based on an original storey by Thorne in collaboration with authors J.K. Rowling and John Tiffany. They are also the one who directs. This marks the eighth story in the Harry Potter series and the first official ‘Harry Potter’ story to be presented on stage.
Also, this will be Harry Potter movie set’s 20th anniversary.
The show continues Rowling’s young wizard’s exploits as an adult working at the Ministry of Magic. However, his youngest son Albus Severus Potter struggles with the family legacy.
The show was previously presented in two parts, identical to the West End version, but will now be presented as a single piece on Broadway. With a record-breaking nine Olivier Awards victories, including Best New Play, the play is the most honoured production in Olivier Awards history.
Moreover, Chris Columbus, the film’s director, told Variety that he would love to work on a film adaptation of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child.
It is a 2016 Harry Potter play set 19 years after the final book in the series finishes.
“I would love to direct ‘The Cursed Child,'” Columbus expressed his desire to direct the film. “It’s a fantastic play, and the kids are the perfect age to play those parts. It’s just a figment of my imagination.”
When the pupils of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry were all children, Chris helped create the series on film. Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson, and Rupert Grint, the principal actors, are now in their 30s, roughly the same age as the adult versions of their characters in the stage production ‘Harry Potter and the Cursed Child.’
