Harry Potter and the Cursed Child’s West End debut is beginning to take shape, with some of the leading cast confirmed.

Harry Potter and the Cursed Child play

Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is based on an original new story by J.K. Rowling, Jack Thorne and John Tiffany, set to storm London’s West End in the summer of 2016.

The hotly-anticipated production will open at the Palace Theatre, replacing Miss Saigon.

It will also form two parts on stage, with audiences being given the chance to see both shows in order on the same day (matinee and evening) or split their viewings with consecutive evenings.
