“Harry Potter and the Cursed Child” Lands Ten Outer Critics Circle Award Nominations
With all the buzz surrounding the Broadway premiere of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, it’s no surprise that the highly anticipated production would catch the attention of the theater community. The play had already broken Broadway’s highest-grossing production record before it even had a chance to open, and more tickets went on sale right after opening day. All of the excitement regarding Cursed Child‘s opening on Broadway is probably why it seems natural to see that it has been nominated for ten Outer Critics Circle Awards.
The Outer Critics Circle is an organization that covers New York theater happenings to outside media. This includes out-of-town newspapers and national publications. It just released its list of nominees for the 2017–2018 season, which you can see here. For an exclusive look at the Cursed Child nominations, keep scrolling!
