Friedman

Producer

As the lead producer (with Colin Callender) of the two-part “Harry Potter and the Cursed Child,” Friedman has a live-theater smash on her hands that approaches “Hamilton” in profitability and potential. But that’s far from the only show on her plate: She is one of the busiest producers working in London and New York today, with a taste for ambitious new work — the U.S. transfers of Jez Butterworth’s buzzy play “The Ferryman” and James Graham’s “Ink,” a look at the Murdoch empire, as well as must-see revivals such as the “Richard III/Twelfth Night” double bill that played Broadway a few seasons ago. She has branched into TV, too, with starry adaptations such as the BBC’s “Wolf Hall” and “King Lear,” with Anthony Hopkins.
