Accio, millions of dollars! The two-part Broadway production Harry Potter and the Cursed Child took home $2,277,446 for the week of June 17. That just so happens to be the week after the play won in six categories at the Tony Awards. That seven-figure achievement breaks the record for ticket sales for a Broadway play in a single week, a record previously held by … Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, which took in $2,138,859 in one week in April.
Harry Potter and the Cursed Child won for Best Play, Best Direction, Best Scenic Design, Best Costume Design, Best Lighting Design, and Best Sound Design. It also summoned quite a few awards for its U.K. run, including nine Oliviers, another record.
