Harry Potter and the Cursed Child features prominently in this week's theater news, as has often been the case since the production first opened in London. The attending cast is now confirmed for BroadwayCon 2019, and the newest production, located in Melbourne, Australia, is readying for January previews.

Cursed Child stars and contributors remain busy elsewhere as well, with soundtrack composer Imogen Heap announcing a new world tour for the first time in eight years that will prove as ground-breaking as her music. In addition to concerts, the Mycelia tour will also feature music and family coding workshops and forums for discussing technology and fairness in the industry. It will officially launch the blockchain-fueled platform called "Creative Passport." Heap told Papermag:

"For years now we've been complaining about the state of the music industry and how it has been held back by old ways of thinking, negatively impacting music makers – a major pain point being that we are the first to put in any of the work, and the last to see any financial reward or even payment…Through Mycelia and its ‘Creative Passport', as music makers we now have no excuse but to put our best foot forward and become open for business, decentralizing the ecosystem so that it will ultimately benefit everyone. I am excited to be going on the road to bring this to life, in addition to showcasing other new technologies which will add to transforming the music industry into a fair, flourishing and vibrant place."
