“Cursed Child” Reaches No. 6 in Broadway Sales
Having debuted in New York slightly over a week ago, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is already climbing to the top of the Broadway box office sales charts. After its opening week, the show has already reached No. 6.
Cursed Child‘s first week consisted of six preview shows, each of which were filled to capacity. With sold-out shows, the opening week managed to pull in a total of $1,541,957, despite 300 tickets for each performance being sold for $40 or less per part. All of March’s performances, as well as half of April’s dates, are already sold out, so it’s likely the show will continue to bring in similar numbers for the next few months.
Topping the sales chart for the week ending March 23 is Hamilton at $3,082,529 followed by Springsteen on Broadway at $2,407,110. The Lion King is at No. 3 with $2,071,519 followed by Wicked, $1,815,639, and Dear Evan Hansen, $1,670,889.
Tickets for upcoming performances are still for sale on the website and more can become available daily as tickets are returned or through late-release, so be sure to check back regularly if you are still trying to secure tickets for the show.
