The Ambassador Theater Group owns the space and plans an extensive renovation to make a smaller playhouse — from 1,900 seats to 1,500 seats. It plans to kick out the Cirque du Soleil show “Paramour” in April to start work.

The Harry Potter play was written by Jack Thorne from a story by Thorne, J.K. Rowling and John Tiffany. It picks up 19 years after the end of the final novel, “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.”
