After nearly 6.5 years of playing on Broadway, the producers and creative team of "Harry Potter and the Cursed Child" will launch a 1st National Tour this September 10th in Chicago.

The cast for the tour was announced this morning, featuring John Skelley as Harry Potter, who returns to the titular role after starring in the San Francisco sit-down production. Alongside Skelley will be Matt Mueller as Ron Weasley, Ebony Blake as Hermione Granger, Trish Lindstrom as Ginny Potter, and more.

The tour will play in Chicago through February 1, 2025, after which it will travel to Hollywood's Pantages Theatre for an engagement from February 13 through June 22. Following this, it will move on to The National Theatre in Washington, DC, where it will begin performances on July 8.

Can’t wait to see it here in Chicago and curious what they’re changed with it.

Really curious to hear how the effects work, I heard from someone that the main change is getting rid of the onstage water (which makes sense), but I'd assume there's more than that too.

I'm curious to see if the touring actors will play into the queer subtext. James Romney and Brady Dalton Richards played the Albus / Scorpius relationship as a romance when I saw the show on Broadway.

I don't even remember the water?

I think the water is at the top of what used to be the second act of part 1
