Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is having a bumper week, as news broke about the fourth London cast going into rehearsals, San Francisco’s production released their tickets, and New York prepares to hit its one-year anniversary, with a new cast about to begin performances.
You’d need not one, not two, but four owls to send out all of this week’s Cursed Child news. Here’s your update on the show’s activities all over the globe.
London welcomes the fourth Cursed Child cast
At the Palace Theatre, London, the Cursed Child cast is gaining some new members. From 22 May, the current cast will be reshuffling a little, making way for some new wizards and witches. Hermione will be played by Michelle Gayle, while Rayxia Ojo and Dominic Short will be joining the company as Rose and Albus respectively.
Jamie Ballard (Harry Potter), Susie Trayling (Ginny Weasley), Thomas Aldridge (Ron Weasley), James Howard (Draco Malfoy) and Jonathan Case (Scorpius Malfoy) stay on, while the rest of the company has made a couple of new changes too. For more details on the new additions, check the official website.
