Mayor's Office of Media and Entertainment Commissioner Julie Menin today announced that in partnership with the team behind the upcoming Broadway show Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, one hundred New York City Housing Authority (NYCHA) residents from the Lower East Side and the Bronx will have the opportunity to attend the new show at no cost.
This is the latest effort from MOME to provide NYCHA residents with access to the Broadway show experience, which can often be cost-prohibitive for low-income families. In addition to this generous ticket giveaway, the producers of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child are making a concerted effort to create opportunities for New Yorkers to experience the show, with 300 seats priced at $40 or less per part, and 150 of these seats are priced at $20 per part.
Based on an original new story by J.K. Rowling, Jack Thorne and John Tiffany, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is a new play by Jack Thorne, directed by John Tiffany. The production is one play presented in two parts.
One hundred tickets will be made available for NYCHA residents at each of the first two public preview performances - Part One on March 16, 2018 at 8:00 pm and Part Two on March 17, 2018 at 8:00 pm. They will be among the very first people to see Harry Potter and the Cursed Child in North America.
