“Cursed Child” Nearly Sweeps All at Olivier Awards!

We previously announced that Harry Potter and the Cursed Child had been nominated for 11 Olivier Awards, which was completely unprecedented! Tonight, the controversial play has taken home nearly every single award it was nominated for! The awards were presented tonight with voiceover work by Harry Potter actress Zoë Wanamaker (Madam Hooch)!
