‘Harry Potter and the Cursed Child’ earns 11 Olivier nominations
The first Harry Potter story to be presented on stage, “Harry Potter and the Cursed Child” by Jack Thorne, managed to receive 11 nominations for the 2017 Olivier Awards.
J.K. Rowling’s spinoff was nominated for Best Costume Design, Best Actor, Best Director and Outstanding Achievement in Music, to name a few.
“Harry Potter and the Cursed Child” follows the adult life of Harry Potter as he continues to grapple with his past. Unfortuantely, his youngest son Albus is not spared from the weight of a family legacy he did not want.
Results for the Olivier Awards will be revealed on April 9 in London.
