Producers Sonia Friedman from London and Colin Callender from New York said today:
“Bringing Harry Potter and the Cursed Child back to live audiences in Australia is an incredibly special and significant moment for us and the theatre community. The unprecedented nature of the past year has been hugely transformative for all of us and we need the opportunity for escapism. The power of art, performance, communal experiences and immersion into a magical story and world is something we need now, more than ever. Live theatre offers that release and has done for thousands of years – it’s a very powerful thing.
We are thrilled to bring our beloved artists back to work and that fans in Melbourne are first to experience the return of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child to the stage globally. This moment gives us great hope and optimism for our other productions along with theatregoers and fans around the world. We are so excited to bring the magic back to the Princess Theatre in Melbourne.”
