Everything You Need to Know to Purchase “Cursed Child” NYC Tickets
At last, tickets for Harry Potter and the Cursed Child are going on sale! Thousands of American fans will be clamoring for one of these coveted seats, so it’s important that you know exactly how to purchase your tickets. Here’s all the information you’ll need!
Tickets to Cursed Child will be sold exclusively through Ticketmaster, so you’ll need to register to receive your access code. Registration opens on October 1 at 10:00 a.m. ET and closes on October 5 at 10:00 p.m. At 11:00 a.m. ET on October 18, tickets go on sale on a first come, first served basis.
This process is meant to eliminate bots and scalpers snapping up tickets and selling them at exorbitant prices. The process is randomized, so everyone has a fair chance at getting a ticket, regardless of their purchase history.
Tickets in this release will be priced at $20, $40, $80, $130, $165, and $199 per part for performances beginning April 25, 2018. During previews, which occur from March 16 to April 21, select regular price points will be discounted and priced at $20, $40, $70, $120, $155, and $189 per part. Premium tickets are also available for all performances. In addition, you’ll have a chance to buy tickets at a reduced rate during the Friday Forty, when at 1:00 p.m. ET, the production will release 40 tickets for some of the very best seats in the theater for every performance the following week at $20 per part. Producers Sonia Friedman and Colin Callender say that they hope to make the play accessible to everyone with these opportunities:
From the start of our journey bringing Harry Potter and the Cursed Child to the stage, it’s been a priority to get tickets into the hands of theatregoers. Every performance at the Lyric Theatre will have 300 seats throughout the theatre at $40 and under per part, with 150 of those seats priced at $20 per part. As in London, where a large percentage of our audience are first[-]time theatregoers, tickets will be available at a wide range of prices across all performances, to allow as much flexibility as possible. And while the play was conceived to be seen on the same day or consecutive evenings, it is also possible to purchase parts for non-consecutive dates, or even a single part.
The performance schedule makes it easy to see both parts of the play on Wednesday, Saturday, and Sunday. On Thursday, only Part One is performed, and only Part Two is performed on Friday.
There’s not much time left to prepare for registration! Make sure to sign up on October 1, and buy your tickets on October 18. Visit www.harrypottertheplay.com for more information, and we’ll see you on Broadway in 2018!
