  • What is the current booking period?

    Tickets are currently on sale through May 12, 2019.

  • How many tickets can I purchase in one transaction?

    You may purchase tickets for up to six guests per transaction – either to see Parts One and Two together on the same day or consecutive evenings, both Parts One and Part Two separately for non-consecutive performances, or to see Part One or Part Two only.

  • Can I buy tickets for each part separately?

    If seeing both Parts over consecutive performances does not work for you, you can choose to book both Parts separately and see Part One on a Wednesday matinee or Thursday evening and book Part Two on an alternative Wednesday evening or Friday evening at a later date. All subject to availability.

    Alternatively, during the purchase process you will have the option to purchase just one part on Wednesday, Thursday or Friday performances if you wish to, subject to availability.

  • What payment methods are accepted?

    Our official ticketing partner, Ticketmaster, accepts the following methods of payment: Visa, MasterCard, American Express, and Diner’s Club.

  • Can I buy my tickets from somewhere other than the official ticketing partner?

    For the best seats and to eliminate the risk of fraud, we recommend you purchase tickets only through our official ticketing partners: Ticketmaster, Broadway.com, or TodayTix. Purchasing tickets from any other seller runs a high risk of receiving fraudulent tickets.

    You may also visit the Lyric Theatre Box Office, open daily from 10am to 8pm. The box office is located at 214 W. 43rd St., New York, NY.

  • What is The Friday Forty?

    Every Friday at 1:00 PM ET, 40 tickets for every performance the following week will be released for some of the very best seats in the theatre at $40 ($20 per part).

    These tickets are known as the “Friday Forty.” They will only be available through TodayTix.com or the TodayTix app to ensure that as many people as possible have the chance to access these low-price tickets. It is not possible to purchase these tickets in person at the Lyric Theatre or anywhere else.

    Entries will be accepted into The Friday Forty via TodayTix each Friday from 12:01 AM ET until 1:00 PM ET for the following week’s performances. Winners will be notified between 1:00 PM ET and 5:00 PM ET.

    Winners pay $40 total ($20 per Part) per person, securing a seat for both Part One and Part Two in consecutive performances the following week. Winners are able to purchase a maximum of two tickets for both Part One and Part Two in one transaction, and can pick up tickets at the box office on the day of their performance.

Seeing Both Parts

  • Why is it in two parts?

    This new play presents the eighth story in the Harry Potter series. Because of the epic nature of the story, it could not fit into the performance time of a traditional single play, and consequently will be told in two parts.

  • Do I have to see both parts?

    Part One will only be half the story, so the experience would be incomplete without seeing how the story ends. Likewise, if you only see Part Two, you may find it hard to follow the story.

    We do recommend that you try to see both parts consecutively, but if seeing both Parts over consecutive performances does not work for you, you can choose to see Part One on a Wednesday matinee or Thursday evening and book Part Two on an alternative Wednesday evening or Friday evening at a later date.

    Alternatively, during the purchase process you will have the option to purchase for just one part on Wednesday, Thursday or Friday performances if you wish to, subject to availability.

  • Can I buy tickets for just one part?

    Yes, during the purchase process you will have the option to purchase for just one Part on Wednesday, Thursday or Friday performances if you wish to, subject to availability.

    We do recommend that you try to see both parts consecutively, as Part One will only be half the story, so the experience would be incomplete without seeing how the story ends. Likewise, if you only see Part Two you may find it hard to follow the story.

  • Can I see Part Two without having seen Part One?

    You can, subject to ticket availability. However, we recommend that you see Part One first, as it would be difficult to understand Part Two without seeing Part One. It would be like beginning one of the books in the middle!

  • Why can’t I see Part One on a Saturday or Sunday matinee and Part Two on another night?

    We want to make sure that audiences have the best possible chance of seeing the play in one day. If we sold the Saturday and Sunday performances separately, then there would be no way of guaranteeing that audiences who see a matinee of Part One could also see Part Two on the same day.

Accessibility

  • I have physical access needs, who do I talk to about where I sit?

    There will be an option to select accessible seating during the ticket purchasing process.  If you purchase accessible seats, the Lyric Theatre Team will call you following your purchase to discuss the details of your visit.
