The Lyric Theatre in New York City has just announced a new show premiering on Broadway in Spring 2018. Billed by the venue and its creators J.K. Rowling, Jack Thorne & John Tiffany as “The Eighth Story. Nineteen Years Later,” Harry Potter and the Cursed Child Parts One and Two” is sure to arrive amidst much fanfare.
What makes this show unique and unlike anything most Broadway goers have ever seen is that the show itself is split into two completely separate parts. As such, anybody looking to buy Harry Potter and the Cursed Child tickets for Part One of the show would surely want to secure tickets for the Part Two as well – so as to complete the story – and anybody who has tickets for Part Two would want to have tickets to see Part One first so they’re able to follow along with what’s happening in Part Two.
We’ve included the weekly schedule for this show below. The venue and showrunners themselves have advised attendees to try and see both parts in the same day (an option that’s available on Wednesday, Saturday and Sunday) if at all possible to make it a more cohesive story and experience for those seeing it live.
If you’re not able to secure tickets for both parts of the show on the same day, you can get creative and secure tickets for different days, though again, you’d want to be sure that you’d be able to go see Part One before Part Two.
All of these unique circumstances surrounding the chance to get tickets to a Broadway show that will be in major demand before it begins begs the question, when do Harry Potter And The Cursed Child tickets go on sale and how can you get cheap tickets?
