'Harry Potter and the Cursed Child' could be coming to Broadway


Of course, it would be disingenuous to think New York and Broadway weren't part of our thinking.
Sonia Friedman, producer

Desperate to see "Harry Potter and the Cursed Child" but can't get to London? 

You might be in for a treat.

The producers of the hit play, a sequel to the books, said they're considering a Broadway run, The New York Times reports.

There's nothing concrete just yet, but producers Sonia Friedman and Colin Callender seem open to the possibility.

Looks like J.K. Rowling might get her wish after all.

"Cursed Child" would be unusual on Broadway for two key reasons: It's not a musical, and it's five hours long (which is why it's split into two parts).

But it's drawing rave reviews in London, and audiences seem equally thrilled. Friedman seemed particularly impressed with the age of the audience: 18 to 35 is far younger than the average theatergoer.

Plus, the script was released in book form July 31, and it's probably going to be the most popular book of the summer, if not the year. 

Please, no spoilers!

How excited are you for 'Cursed Child'?
