“Cursed Child” Has the Best Week Ever, and So Can You
Harry Potter and the Cursed Child has once again broken its own ticket-sale records. During the week of November 25, the Broadway play grossed $2,338,315, breaking its previous record of $2,277,446 from the week of June 17. Cursed Child isn’t breaking only its own records, however; the two-part play’s extraordinary week also sets the record for the most weekly tickets sales in Broadway history.
If this news has renewed a desperate desire to see the unstoppable spectacle for yourself, you’re in luck! The release day for tickets for the summer 2019 season, which runs through September 29, is almost here. Tickets will be released at 11:00 a.m. ET on Thursday, November 29, in a “Virtual Waiting Room” on www.HarryPotterThePlay.com. The Virtual Waiting Room opens at 10:30 a.m. ET, and at 11:00 a.m., everyone in the room will be randomly assigned a place in the queue to purchase tickets, which start at $40 for each of the two parts.
Harry Potter and the Cursed Child has been drawing crowds and attention since it first opened in London. It was won six Tony Awards and a record-breaking nine Olivier Awards as part of its total forty-nine major award wins in the United States and United Kingdom. In addition to continuing its successful London and New York shows, Cursed Child will be adding locations in Melbourne, Australia, and San Francisco, California, in 2019, as well as Hamburg, Germany, in 2020. No matter the location, Cursed Child is sure to keep breaking records wherever it goes!
