“Harry Potter and the Cursed Child” London Remains Suspended Through February 2021
The impacts of the coronavirus pandemic in the United Kingdom have officially moved into their second year as the suspension of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is extended until February 2021. In a statement released on its social media accounts, Cursed Child London confirmed that the Palace Theatre will remain empty for the rest of the year.
This announcement comes shortly after an unfortunate string of similar announcements, where the reopening of Cursed Child performances in the United States was also postponed. While this is definitely understandable given the public health crisis, it certainly comes as a massive disappointment to fans who were eagerly looking forward to witnessing the wizarding world live.
