Suspension of “Cursed Child” Productions Extended Through End of May
Following the recent spread of COVID-19 (coronavirus) and how carefully we must follow social distancing rules, various theaters have decided to suspend performances of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child.
Previously, productions had been suspended at the Palace Theatre in London, United Kingdom. On April 6, the official Twitter account of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child in London informed fans that productions of the theatrical play will be suspended until May 31 following instruction from the Society of London Theatre. This is due to the UK Government’s lockdown procedures following the spread of COVID-19. Social distancing is a must during times like this to keep everyone safe.
