Broadway “Cursed Child” Auditions to Begin This Month
While many of us can hardly wait until Harry Potter and the Cursed Child makes its Broadway debut in spring 2018, the actors and actresses among us may want to take a more active role – casting will soon be underway for the show’s US run!
The news broke today as director John Tiffany reported to Time Out that the recasting of the West End run is nearly complete, mentioning that the new cast members will be announced soon. The interviewer soon turned his attention to the show’s upcoming Broadway run. Tiffany shared that they’ll be considering a mixture of both British and American actors for the show.
I think it’ll be a mixture – it’s part of what American audiences want, proper toffs.
Soon after, BroadwayWorld reported that auditions for the Broadway production are about to commence. You can read the full audition notice here. While many fans were hoping that some of the show’s West End cast might decide to take a turn on Broadway, the audition notice makes it appear that the production team will be considering actors for all roles – so who knows what will happen!
Do you know anyone who will be taking a shot at auditions? Do you have any Broadway favorites you’d love cast in a certain role?
