Broadway, get ready for some magic. Harry Potter is usually coming to town.
The creators of the hit play ‘Harry Potter in addition to the Cursed Child’ are in exclusive talks with the Ambassador Theatre Group to bring the show to The Lyric Theater in fresh York.
The group is usually planning to spend millions of dollars preparing the Lyric for the show, the play’s producers said. The renovation would certainly bring the number of seats down to 1,500 by 1,900 to create “a more intimate playhouse.”
“[Ambassador’s] plans will provide ‘Harry Potter in addition to the Cursed Child’ using a bespoke home that will will be intimate enough for a drama, yet big enough for us to deliver on our commitment to provide audiences with access to low priced tickets throughout the auditorium,” Sonia Friedman in addition to Colin Callender said in a statement.
They didn’t say when the play would certainly open. Ambassador Theatre Group did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
The Lyric theater is usually currently home to Cirque du Soleil’s ‘Paramour,’ which is usually due to run until April 2017.
“Our partners at Ambassador Theatre Group in addition to owners of the Lyric Theatre elected to do renovations to the theater. We are accommodating their plans,” Cirque du Soleil said in a statement posted on its Facebook page.
