24 Oct 2015 | Author: | No comments yet »

Harry Potter play to open on London stage in summer 2016.

Harry Potter And The Cursed Child is based on an original tale part-written by JK Rowling and will feature a grown-up Harry, who now works for the Ministry of Magic. Rowling’s books have sold over 450 million copies and been translated into 78 languages, while the film franchise based on the books broke box office records.

The new story was a collaboration between Rowling, scriptwriter Jack Thorne and theatre director John Tiffany, who has won awards in London and New York for his work on the musical Once. “The story only exists because the right group of people came together with a brilliant idea about how to present Harry Potter on stage,” Rowling was quoted as saying in a statement from the publicists. Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them is another wizard spin-off about magizoologist Newt Scamander and is set in New York 70 years before Harry Potter reads his book in school. The script is by Thorne, a stage and screen writer whose work includes vampire story “Let the Right One In.” The director is Tiffany, who helmed the critically lauded war play “Black Watch” and multiple Tony Award-winning musical “Once.” Tickets go on sale Wednesday to buyers who registered online and to the general public on Oct 30.
