New York’s Lyric Theatre Marquee Takes Flight Ahead of the Broadway Premiere of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child Parts One and Two
Producers Sonia Friedman and Colin Callender have officially unveiled the newly renovated Lyric Theatre marquee on West 43rd Street for the Broadway premiere of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child.
With a design by the production’s Set Designer Christine Jones and International Scenic Supervisor Brett J. Banakis, the building now features a 150 foot, 50,000 pound wing spanning from the theatre’s marquee up the side of the building. The iconic nest with child adorns the top of Lyric Theatre, overlooking 43rd Street.
Harry Potter and the Cursed Child begins preview performances on March 16, 2018 and the official opening is April 22, 2018 at the fully renovated Lyric Theatre.
Based on an original new story by J.K. Rowling, Jack Thorne and John Tiffany, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is a new play by Jack Thorne, directed by John Tiffany. The production is one play presented in two parts. Both parts are intended to be seen in order on the same day (matinee and evening) or on two consecutive evenings, or each part can be seen separately.
