The play “Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, Parts I and II” has been out in London for the past 2 years, but it recently made its debut on Broadway in New York City. It didn’t need to cast any spells to make eager Muggles spend up to $286.50 per act to see the show. Blimey!

What is Broadway? It is a big, broad road that runs through Manhattan, New York. Between 42nd and 53rd streets though, it houses about 40 theatres that show many great plays and musicals. It is the Theatre District in Manhattan.

Back to Harry Potter! This is the most expensive non-musical in Broadway history, costing $68.5 million to produce. There are two acts that last a mind-boggling 5 hours!

What is amazing is that the Broadway production of The Cursed Child” has already been nominated for multiple prestigious awards in America, despite only being out for a couple of months. It is the most nominated play of the Broadway season. The story is written by J.K. Rowling along with Jack Thorne and John Tiffany and the play has been directed by Thorne.

As you might imagine, the play is completely sold out. However for those who cannot hop on a broom to go see it, here is another treat from the Harry Potter franchise. Check out the new game for mobile devices: Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery. The game has been launched by Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment. It allows the user to create a avatar of themselves as a new Hogwarts student, receive a letter from Hogwarts, be sorted into a House, attend classes at the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, enrage Snape (shiver) and Transfigure themselves under the supervision of Professor McGonagall!
