“We continue to be both humbled and heartened by the ongoing support of our audiences as we postpone performances due to COVID-19. I know I speak for the entire cast, crew and creative team when I say that we can’t wait to return to our home at the Princess Theatre. We continue to work with all stakeholders in navigating a path for our return and look forward to sharing the magic of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child as soon as we are able.”
