The world premiere of the touring production of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, based on the Broadway production, will launch at the James M. Nederlander Theatre in Chicago on September 10, 2024. The show will have an engagement there through February 1, 2025, before continuing to other tour stops, which will be announced at a later date.
Harry Potter and the Cursed Child opened on Broadway at the Lyric Theatre in 2018 as a two-part show and was reimagined as one play at the same theater in 2021, where it continues to run.
