TRAVEL & ENTERTAINMENT: “Harry Potter and The Cursed Child” Celebrates the New Year at S.F.’s Curran Theater

Jan 10, 2020
Based on an original new story by J.K. Rowling, Jack Thorne and John Tiffany, “Harry Potter and the Cursed Child,” a new play by Jack Thorne is currently playing through July 12, 2020 at San Francisco’s Curran Theater. With record-breaking productions currently running in London, New York and Melbourne, the San Francisco production marks the fourth engagement of the award-winning show, as well as its West Coast premiere.

“Harry Potter and the Cursed Child” is the eighth story in the Harry Potter series and the first official Harry Potter story to be presented on stage, bringing together some of the most exciting talent working in the theatre today.

It was always difficult being Harry Potter and it isn’t much easier now that he is an overworked employee of the Ministry of Magic, a husband and father of three school-age children.

While Harry grapples with a past that refuses to stay where it belongs, his youngest son Albus 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.

The San Francisco cast of “Harry Potter and the Cursed Child” includes John Skelley as Harry Potter, Angela Reed as Ginny Potter, and Benjamin Papac as their son Albus Potter; David Abeles as Ron Weasley, Yanna McIntosh as Hermione Granger, and Folami Williams as their daughter Rose Granger-Weasley; Lucas Hall as Draco Malfoy and Jon Steiger as his son Scorpius Malfoy.

“Harry Potter and the Cursed Child” features movement by Steven Hoggett, set by Christine Jones, costumes by Katrina Lindsay, music & arrangements by Imogen Heap, lighting by Neil Austin, sound by Gareth Fry, illusions & magic by Jamie Harrison, music supervision & arrangements by Martin Lowe. Casting by Jim Carnahan, CSA.

Tickets are currently on sale through July 12, 2020, at HarryPotterOnStage.com and in person at the Curran Theater box office. The box office hours are Tuesday through Saturday 12–8p.m. and Sunday 11 a.m.–7 p.m. (closed Monday).
