A new trailer for Harry Potter and the Cursed Child has been released. The trailer features never before seen footage from the award-winning international hit stage production.
Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is the eighth story in the Harry Potter series and the first official Harry Potter story to be presented on stage. Based on an original new story by J.K. Rowling, Jack Thorne and John Tiffany, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is a new play by Jack Thorne, directed by John Tiffany.
Producer Sonia Friedman and Colin Callender stated, “We are very proud that J.K. Rowling chose to tell her eighth story on stage. Just as she created a generation of lifelong readers with the Harry Potter book series, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is now doing the same for theatre, with over half of our audiences worldwide being first time theatre-goers of all ages. There is nothing like the experience of being in a theatre with a community of others, seeing and experiencing in real-time as the magic unfolds live before your eyes. The Boy Who Lived, lives on, and the story continues on stage across the world because, as J.K. Rowling herself said: ‘Sometimes, darkness comes from unexpected places.'"
The play is currently showing at the Palace Theatre in London, the Lyric Theatre in New York and at the Princess Theatre in Melbourne. Upcoming productions include the U.S. West Coast premiere in San Francisco at the Curran next month, the German premiere which is the first non-English language production at the Mehr! Theater am Großmarkt in Hamburg in spring of 2020 and the Canadian premiere at the Ed Mirvish Theatre in Toronto in the fall of 2020.
