We all want to see Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, but not all of us have the money to buy expensive theater tickets and just take a few days off work to hop on a plane to London, Europe. As a result, seeing this thing in real life is more of a fantasy for many Americans, something you dream about but will likely never achieve.
Until now! According to Pottermore, The Cursed Child is in talks to open on Broadway. This widens its audience significantly to include all those who can’t afford a London trip but can buy a hot Broadway theater ticket and plane ride to New York! Take that, snobs!
The idea is for it to open in 2018 at the Lyric Theater, after it undergoes a huge remodel just for the play. The Lyric holds about 1,500 people and it takes two nights to complete a show, which means you’ll probably be able to get tickets some time during Pence’s second term. If we still have theater then.
In the meantime, you can read the play and even put it on with your pals in your very own living rooms right now.
