Producers Sonia Friedman and Colin Callender have announced the complete cast for the Broadway return of “Harry Potter and the Cursed Child.”
Returning to their pre-shutdown roles are James Snyder as Harry Potter, Diane Davis as Ginny Potter, Jenny Jules as Hermione Granger and Nadia Brown as Rose Granger-Weasley. David Abeles will join the cast as Ron Weasley.
As previously reported, the play will reopen on Broadway as one consolidated show, rather than the two-part iteration that had played before the shutdown.
The producers had announced a complete cast list for the play’s third year on Broadway in Feb. 2020. That cast was scheduled to begin performances on March 18, 2020, but the pandemic thwarted those plans.
Included in that announcement were James Romney and Aaron Bartz, taking on the roles of Albus Potter and Draco Malfoy, respectively. Romney and Bartz will play those roles when “Harry Potter and the Cursed Child” returns. Previously announced cast member Brady Dalton Richards will play Scorpius Malfoy.
The reopening cast also includes Oge Agulué, Kevin Angulo, Chelsey Arce, Quinn Blades, Michela Cannon, Will Carlyon, Lauren Nicole Cipoletti, Judith Lightfoot Clarke, Ted Deasy, Kira Fath, Stephanie Gomérez, Steve Haggard, Ben Horner, Edward James Hyland, Jax Jackson, Jack Koenig, Spencer LaRue, Rachel Leslie, Sarita Amani Nash, Alexandra Peter, Dan Piering, Kevin Matthew Reyes, William Rhem, Antoinette Robinson, Stephen Spinella, Tom Stephens, Maya Thomas and Karen Janes Woditsch.
“Harry Potter and the Cursed Child” is scheduled to resume performances at the Lyric Theatre on Nov. 12.
While the Broadway show has been consolidated into one part, the two-part version will continue to play in the West End as well as in the Melbourne, Australia and Hamburg, Germany productions. The Toronto, San Francisco and Tokyo productions, all scheduled for 2022, will open as the new one-part play.
