'Harry Potter and the Cursed Child' Play May Be Coming to America


Potter heads were pumped when they found out the Harry Potter and the Cursed Child was getting a play, but American muggles where a tad discouraged when they found out it was going to be in London's West End.

But no fear, U.S. fans may not have to travel across oceans to see the theater production, as producers are eyeing a home on Broadway in New York. According to the New York Times, the Lyric Theater is trying to lure the play to the States by resculpting their venue to better suit the play, carving out one-fifth of its seats to accommodate a smaller audience.

The Lyric currently holds Cirque du Soleil's Paramour show, but the British company that owns the venue has "incentivized" them to leave to make room for Potter and his pals.

The move to New York is not set in stone yet. The Times reports that the Cursed Child producers are “in advanced discussions” and “exclusive talks” to open the play. If they came to Broadway, they'd be up against the Frozen musical, which would also open around spring 2018.
