Big news for Harry Potter fans (myself one of them) there is a major new play coming to London’s West End and it will be called Harry Potter and the Cursed Child.
JK Rowling is tight lipped about the plot but it will tell the “untold part” of the boy wizard’s story, including the story of the lives of his murdered parents.
From the BBC:
JK Rowling announces the play Harry Potter and the Cursed Child will open in London’s West End next year.
It will run at the Palace Theatre in the summer of 2016, with tickets on sale this autumn.
Rowling said she chose to make the announcement on Friday because it was “a very special day” – the 18th anniversary of when her debut book, Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone, was first published in the UK.
It will be produced by Sonia Friedman and Colin Callender, and British singer Imogen Heap will provide the music.
It will be at the 1,400-seat Palace Theatre, which was home to theatrical blockbuster Les Miserables for a record 19 years.
We’ll definitely be buying tickets to this show when they go on sale this fall!
