So with the virus now, things are looking like plays will be able to return but musicals wont for quite a while. Because the singing would be more dangerous. How would this fare with Harry Potter and the Cursed Child? Would they be able to open when plays are alowed?

It's hard to say. They have a massive cast, closer in number to a musical than most plays, which might be a safety hazard for a while. Also, the current cast's contract expired a month ago, so it depends if Sonia Friedman decides to renew it or hire a whole new cast, which would take longer time to get ready with rehearsals from scratches & all. I think we'll have to stick with solutions like the Old Vic's Lungs for a while, shows with just a couple of actors are much easier to stage, rehearse and perform while social distancing is still a thing.
