Harry Potter and the Cursed Child to Launch 2024 North American Tour

The Tony Award-winning production "Harry Potter and the Cursed Child" is set to bring the magical world of Hogwarts to theaters across the U.S. and Canada with a tour launching next fall.

Currently captivating audiences on Broadway at the Lyric Theatre, "Harry Potter and the Cursed Child" will kick off its national tour at Chicago’s James M. Nederlander Theatre, with an opening night slated for September 26, 2024. The show will run for a 21-week engagement, concluding on February 1, 2025. Details regarding casting and additional tour dates across North America will be announced in the coming months.

Producers Sonia Friedman and Colin Callender expressed their excitement, stating that "developing a first-class touring production" of the show has "long been an ambition of ours."

"We are delighted that our wonderful and deeply gifted creative team have found a way to make it possible to bring the magic, spectacle, and thrills of our astonishing show to audiences across North America, and we can’t wait for audiences to see it," the pair said in a statement.

Based on a story by J.K. Rowling, "Harry Potter and the Cursed Child" picks up 19 years after the events of "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows." The play follows Harry's son, Albus, who befriends Scorpius Malfoy, the son of Draco Malfoy. Together, the boys embark on a journey that challenges their ability to alter the past and future forever.

Since its Broadway debut in 2018, the show has garnered high praise, with Forbes calling it "one of the most defining pop culture events of the decade." Currently, it runs eight performances a week on Broadway and recently broke its own record for the highest weekly gross by a non-musical play in Broadway history, earning over $2.6 million in a single week.
