All About Harry Potter And The Cursed Child On Broadway This Spring

Harry Potter And The Cursed Child comes to life in New York at the Lyric Theatre this spring. You have to go if you are in New York and as big of a nerd as me. I can’t imagine a more magical experience; with chocolate frogs and Butter-beer, I’m sure it’s hard to leave unhappy. Characters such as Hermione, Ron, and Harry will be a part of the show, along with Albus Potter and Scorpius Malfoy.

 Tickets to the show are as low as $59 USD a seat and as high as $189 USD available to buy now. The first showing of this year is on April 25th. Technology helps bring the magic to life with QR codes and the power of Instagram. You can find paintings and portraits coming to life throughout the lobby and in the halls. Photo booths are also carefully placed throughout the theatre to help capture the special memories being made.

Overview of the Show

Harry Potters’s son (Albus) befriends his enemy’s son (Scorpius), which turns into a journey like no other. With the power to change the past and the future, things soon get sticky in the wizarding world. Spells, Battles, and Magic all take place in this show. Written to be performed, fans all over swarm the Lyric Theatre in New York to see the final product and are not disappointed in the slightest. People Magazine wrote, “You’ll be wondering how’d they do that?’ for days to come”

    Careers in Theater: Are They Scarce?

    At the time, all I could think of was that it could be worse. I wanted to tell my dad that I could be majoring in Theater instead of English Literature. My dream could be becoming a live theater actress, and not a writer.
    The heavily criticized theater major stuck with me since then, and I could not help but wonder if the lack of theater-watching across the country played a role in the job industry’s amount of job openings.
