We knew this play was coming, but now we have an official opening date.

The Cursed Child, the closest thing to a Harry Potter sequel we’re likely to get, will open at Broadway’s Lyric Theatre on April 22, 2018. In the first announcement, we were told that the theater would be remodeled partly to accommodate the extremely elaborate needs of the show.

The real magic in this situation, however, will be actually be getting your hands on tickets. We still don’t know when they will go on sale—but they’re sure to go fast, since the play appeals not only to Potter fans, but also general theater fans, since The Cursed Child won a bunch of awards in England.
