‘Harry Potter and the Cursed Child’ reveals its Broadway cast

Harry Potter and the Cursed Child just revealed its Broadway cast, and there are some familiar faces onboard.

Several of the original London cast members will return to launch the U.S. show, including Jamie Parker as Harry Potter. He’s joined by the actors who played Ron, Hermione, Ginny, Draco, and the two protagonists Albus Potter and Scorpius Malfoy. Pottermore has a full list of new actors joining the Broadway show in supporting roles.

Previews begin in March 2018 at the Lyric Theatre in New York, opening officially on April 22. Fans will be able to buy tickets on Oct. 12 from Ticketmaster, although you’ll have to register yourself as a “verified fan” first. That means registering between Oct. 1 and Oct. 5, making this a two-step process.

Mark your calendars for that preorder date, because if it’s anything like the London production of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, tickets will sell out fast.
