t's that time of year again – “Back to Hogwarts” returns on Friday, September 1, 2023, when Harry Potter fans around the world celebrate the Hogwarts Express departing from King's Cross Station in London for the start of a new term at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. The record-breaking Broadway hit Harry Potter and the Cursed Child will mark the occasion this year at the Lyric Theatre (214 W 43rd St, NYC) with a special one-time-only ticket offer for fans.
When the box office opens at 10 am on September 1st, the first 50 tickets for that evening’s performance will be sold for $9.75 in a nod to Platform 9 and ¾ where students board the Hogwarts Express. There is a limit of two tickets per person. There will also be special gifts and surprise giveaways for those in line that morning. Tickets at this price level can only be purchased at the Lyric Theatre’s box office on West 43rd Street.
Those in line at 10 am who don’t get the special Platform 9 and ¾ pricing will still get to buy tickets at the box office at the $40 “Friday Forty” price level for the same, Friday, September 1st performance.
