Harry Potter and the Cursed Child will be featured at New York Comic Con October 3-6 with a booth and panel.

On Thursday, October 3, at 1pm, at the Hammerstein Ballroom at the Manhattan Center, members of the cast and creative team, including moderator James Snyder, will take a behind-the-scenes look at the show. The panel will feature never-before-seen photos, videos, and live performances.

The production's booth, on display all four days of New York Comic Con at #1736 on Level 3 at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center, will feature Tony Award winner Christine Jones's set model for the Broadway production and exclusive content featured in the forthcoming book Harry Potter and the Cursed Child: The Journey, which will be released by Scholastic in the US on November 5. There will also be a photo booth where fans can show their Hogwarts House pride by posing with Gryffindor, Hufflepuff, Ravenclaw, and Slytherin banners. Tickets to the Broadway production will be available for purchase on-site, as well as merchandise from the show, including the Cursed Child replica of Harry Potter's wand and custom house T-shirts.
