Bay Area 'Harry Potter' fans have something to look forward to in the form of a celebrated play making its west coast debut. 'Harry Potter and the Cursed Child' is coming to San Francisco's Curran Theatre starting October 23, 2019 with dates through June 2020.


It is a five-hour play that comes in two parts, which you can either see as a matinee followed by a night show, or with shows on successive nights.

J.K. Rowling wrote the play with Jack Thorne and John Tiffany and it premiered in London back in 2016. In 2018 it opened with a sold-out run in New York & it took home 6 TONY Awards. For tickets and showtimes you can head here. Tickets start at $59.

The play is set years after the final book and sees Harry grapple with a past that refuses to stay where it belongs. It focuses on his youngest son, Albus, who must struggle with the weight of a family legacy he never wanted. As past and present fuse ominously, both father and son learn the uncomfortable truth: sometimes, darkness comes from unexpected places.

THIS Wednesday, @cursedchildus performances begin⚡️See the story continue on our Curran stage.
