“Cursed Child” Ticket Purchase Process Updated
Tickets for the Broadway production of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child have been notoriously hard to get ahold of. They sold out within minutes of their initial release and then again today as the second batch was released. The system for reserving them has also been somewhat convoluted, requiring registration for an access code. However, that whole process is about to get a lot easier. Starting tomorrow, February 8, at 11:00 a.m. ET, further tickets will be released as and when available. These tickets will not require an access code but do rely on a queue number system to decide when you can get tickets.
Starting at 10:30 a.m. on Thursday, you can join the digital waiting room and receive your queue number regardless of when you arrive. After 11:00, when tickets officially go on sale, queue numbers are assigned on a first-come, first-served basis. If you don’t manage to snag a ticket, don’t fret! Ticketmaster will keep you updated on any returned tickets and other late-release tickets that become available. There’s no guarantee, but this new process will certainly make getting tickets much easier.
Harry Potter and the Cursed Child opens at the Lyric Theater on Broadway on April 22, so be sure to get your tickets starting tomorrow morning!
