‘Harry Potter and the Cursed Child’ will premiere in Germany in 2020, marking the first non-English-language production of the hit play.
Known as ‘Harry Potter und das Verwunschene Kind’, the much-awaited thriller will open in Hamburg at the Mehr! Theater am Gossmarkt, reported Variety.
The venue will be redesigned from May 2019 and the play will premiere the following spring.
‘Harry Potter and the Cursed Child’ is a two-part stage play written by Jack Thorne based on an original new story by Thorne, J. K. Rowling and John Tiffany.
