I love live productions so we have to head to Lyric Theater to see “Harry Potter and the Cursed Child“.  Tickets star at $59 you can go any night of the week, but Monday so plan ahead.  If you arrive late you may not get your original seats. The play runs over just 3 hours and may not be best suited for kids under 8 years old.

Know Before You Go

Prepare to be on the edge of your seat at this Tony Award®-winning spectacle that “leaves you gasping in wonder at the magic of it all” (TIME Magazine). The entire theatre has been transformed to immerse you as epic duels, extraordinary spells and beloved characters come to life. Awe, laughter, tears—you’ll feel every moment and never want it to end. “It has to be seen to be believed” (USA Today)

Well, Muggles I’ll see you soon your ticket to board the Hogwarts train will be arriving soon.
