After taking West End by storm, “Harry Potter and the Cursed Child” is coming to Broadway, with tickets going on sale next month. But don’t worry, you don’t have to break the bank or pray you win a lottery like “Hamilton” fans have had to do for months.

On Tuesday, “Potter” author J.K. Rowling, director John Tiffany, and playwright Jack Thorne announced that sections of the Lyric Theatre would be kept at affordable prices to allow Potter fans who have never seen live theater to experience it for the first time. 300 seats for each performance will be available for $40 or less per part, with 150 of those seats available for $20 per seat per part. Fans can see parts I & II of the play on the same day or on separate days.

“We understand this is a relatively small space,” said Rowling, “so we can’t show a million people the play at one time. But this is a way of democratizing that process and making it affordable and reachable for as many people as possible.”

Registration to buy tickets begins Oct. 1, with tickets going on sale Oct. 18. Click here for more info.
