Harry Potter has made a date with Broadway.

The wildly popular and critically acclaimed Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is due to bow in New York in late April 2018 at the Lyric Theater, Variety is reporting.

The two-part play, which is viewed by audiences over the course of one full day or on consecutive evenings, has won a record-breaking nine Olivier Awards.

John Tiffany (“Once,” “The Glass Menagerie”) directs a script written by Jack Thorne, which is based on a story written by the two with Potter’s creator, J.K. Rowling.

Tickets have been as hard for theater-goers (sorry, theatre-goers) to score in the West End as Hamilton tickets have been on this side of the pond.
