The Broadway production of “Harry Potter and the Cursed Child” has recouped its initial capitalization, Broadway News has learned.
According to a spokesperson for the production, the play made back its Broadway investment “late last year (2022).” The representative continued, “The formerly two-part play returned as a single play after the shutdown and has become one of the great post-pandemic success stories on Broadway.”
“Harry Potter and the Cursed Child” will celebrate its fifth anniversary on April 22 and will begin a previously announced series of celebratory events on April 19.
The play opened in its original two-part version on April 22, 2018. Following the pandemic-induced shutdown, the play resumed as one part on Nov. 12, 2021, ahead of an official reopening on Dec. 7. The production won six 2018 Tony Awards, including Best Play.
Written by Jack Thorne and directed by John Tiffany, “Harry Potter and the Cursed Child” is produced on Broadway by Sonia Friedman Productions, Colin Callender and Harry Potter Theatrical Productions.
