More “Cursed Child” NYC Tickets Available in February
Missed out on getting New York City Harry Potter and the Cursed Child tickets the first time around? We have some good news – fans will have another shot at tickets very soon!
On February 7 at 11:00 a.m. EST, tickets at all price points for Cursed Child performances from March 16, 2018, through March 9, 2019, will be available via Ticketmaster for selected Verified Fans.
If you registered as a Verified Fan for the first ticket release in October, you will need to reregister for a chance to get tickets on February 7. Like last time, registering doesn’t guarantee you the chance to buy tickets – you’ll also need to be selected to receive an access code. Information about registering for the February pre-sale has not yet been released, but we will be updating this article as more information becomes available.
Fans who are dismayed to hear about the return of the ever-elusive access code will be happy to know that there’s a silver lining. After the pre-sale on February 7, a general release of tickets will happen on February 8. You won’t need an access code to purchase tickets in the general sale, meaning that those who miss out on getting an access code will still have an opportunity to procure seats.
Producers Sonia Friedman and Colin Callender commented on the ticket release, emphasizing that the Verified Fan process, while it can be frustrating, is meant to benefit real fans of Harry Potter and discourage scalping.
We are eager to make more tickets available for Harry Potter and the Cursed Child on Broadway as soon as possible. As previously announced, there are over 300 seats throughout the theater at each performance priced at $40 or under per part, including 150 seats at $20 per part. As such, we’re working with the Ticketmaster’s Verified Fan® system to ensure as many tickets at all price points get directly into the hands of genuine theatregoers, rather than bots or scalpers who will resell at inflated prices. As producers, we want to do everything possible within current New York state law to protect our tickets and ticketbuyers – especially since we have an unusually large amount of tickets at exceptionally low prices. We also recognize a need for flexibility to allow for traditional sales outside of the registration process, and so this next Verified Fan release will be followed by a general release of tickets from February 8.
