Initial casting has been announced for the Broadway transfer of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, Playbill reported. Seven performers who appeared in the original West End production in London are transferring, including Jamie Parker and Noma Dumezweni, who won Olivier Awards for their performances as Harry Potter and Hermione Granger, respectively, as well as Paul Thornley as Ron Weasley. Also in the cast are Anthony Boyle, who won an Olivier for playing Scorpius Malfoy, along with Poppy Miller (Ginny Potter), Sam Clemmett (Albus Potter) and Alex Price (Draco Malfoy).
"We have assembled an extraordinary cast for Broadway," said director John Tiffany. "Our Cursed Child family is growing with 28 brilliant new actors bringing their unique talents to our production. I also can’t wait to dive back into it with seven of our original London cast members reprising their thrilling performances for New York audiences. The adventure continues..."
Performances will begin at the Lyric Theatre in March 2018, with an official opening set for April 22.
