The audition for the actors who will be part of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child‘s cast on Broadway has already started.
The audition is happening in New York, between February 20th and 22th. The memo itemizes all the roles under consideration, along with short descriptions of the characters.
The casting call notes, as well, that for every role, all ethnicity are welcome. This shows that the “Cursed Child” team have continued the tradition of colorblind casting. It is important to remember that there was a big discussion when Noma Dumezweni, a black actress, was chosen to play Hermione Granger on the season in London.
