“Cursed Child” Broadway Announces Return of the “Friday Forty” in Advance of First Preview Performance
One of the best parts about the world opening back up is the return of theater. There’s nothing quite as magical, and we’ve been thrilled to see several productions of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child announcing show dates recently. Now, Broadway has announced that in advance of its first preview performance, it’s bringing back the famous “Friday Forty.”
You can now enter for your chance to get $40 tickets in advance of the first preview performance on November 12. If you’re not familiar with the Friday Forty, the concept is pretty simple: A limited number of $40 tickets are released for purchase every Friday at 1:00 p.m. ET for the performance the following week. If you’re eager to get your hands on these tickets, you can still enter the draw, which will take place on November 5.
As avid fans will already know, the Broadway production of Cursed Child is now a single-part performance instead of the two-part performances that used to be the norm. The preview performances will start at New York’s Lyric Theatre on November 12, and fans can look forward to the official opening night, which has been set for Tuesday, December 7. The single-show experience will also begin previews in San Francisco at the Curran on January 11, 2022, and in Toronto, Canada, at the Ed Mirvish Theatre on May 31, 2022. The TBS Akasaka ACT Theater in Tokyo will see the single-part show starting on July 8, 2022. In London, the original two-part play has already resumed at the Palace Theatre, and those living in Melbourne, Australia, can look forward to Cursed Child returning to the Princess Theatre on November 18. Fans in Hamburg can enjoy the show at the Mehr! Theater on December 1. More information about show schedules can be found here.
If you’re ready to try your luck with the Friday Forty, you can head to TodayTix.com to enter the draw. Make sure to enter before 1:00 p.m. EDT on Friday, November 5.
