Harry Potter play’s London stars head to Broadway

LONDON -- The stars of the award-winning London production of "Harry Potter and the Cursed Child" are headed to Broadway. Actors Jamie Parker, Noma Dumezweni and Paul Thornley, who played the adult Harry, Hermione and Ron in the West End production of "Cursed Child" are among the London actors joining the New York cast. 

Also making the trip are Sam Clemmett, as Harry's son Albus, and Anthony Boyle as his Hogwarts classmate Scorpius Malfoy.

Producers said Thursday there will be 28 new actors in the two-part play, which takes up the story 19 years after the end of J.K. Rowling's final Potter novel.

The play opened in London in 2016 and went on to win nine Olivier Awards. It continues in London with a new cast.

Previews begin at New York's Lyric Theater in March.
