Broadway.com reports that the West End smash Harry Potter and the Cursed Child will begin performances in Manhattan in spring 2018.

The two-part play caused a bidding war among Broadway theater owners and the show will open at the Lyric Theatre after the 1900-seat Broadway house loses 400 seats and undergoes a massive renovation.

“I’m delighted we are one step closer in bringing Harry Potter and the Cursed Child to Broadway and very excited by the proposed plans,” said J.K. Rowling in a statement.
