Harry Potter and The Cursed Child has graced London’s Palace Theatre since 2016 and if you were one of the unlucky ones haven’t managed to get a ticket, we have some good news…
The hit show has made its way to the Lyric Theatre, New York, where the official opening took place last Sunday, 22nd April 2018. Located in the heart of Times Square, the Lyric Theatre is amongst the ‘must see’ tourist spots; with shopping, bustling streets, stunning landmarks and fabulous eateries all setting the scene for the perfect city break.

How do I get tickets?
Tickets are available to purchase from the official website, and it is a good idea to check availability before you book your air travel to avoid disappointment.
The play is split into two parts with Part One being shown on Wednesdays, Saturdays & Sundays at 2pm and Part Two, being shown Wednesdays through to Sundays at 7:30pm – something to bear in mind when planning your trip.

Decided to go…
Once you have booked your flights, accommodation and, of course, tickets you will need to look for travel insurance. When buying your travel insurance, it is important you read the policy wording carefully to make sure the cover is suitable for your needs.
As you are likely to be spending a small fortune, it is worth looking for a policy that will cover the cost of pre-paid tickets if you are not able to make the trip – there are only a few travel insurers that offer this cover so you may need to go to them direct. In the policy wording look for ‘pre-paid excursions that are directly related to your trip which you cannot get back from anyone else’.

America is known for pricey medical treatment, so make sure your travel insurance policy provides adequate cover for medical expenses, and make sure you declare any existing medical conditions to your travel insurance provider. We have more information about medical expenses here.
Harry Potter and the Cursed Child’s West End Production recently won a staggering nine Olivier Awards, including Best New Play and Best Director, making the show one to see on any New York itinerary.

Pssst… If you can’t make it to New York this Summer the award-winning show will be in Melbourne’s Princess Theatre in early 2019.
