Harry Potter and The Cursed Child

The Show

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 arrives at the Curran Fall 2019. With record-breaking productions currently running in London, New York, and Melbourne, the San Francisco production will mark the fourth engagement of the smash hit play, as well as its West Coast premiere in North America.

HARRY POTTER AND THE CURSED CHILD is the most awarded production in the history of Britain’s Olivier Awards, winning a record-breaking nine awards including Best New Play and Best Director. The production has won 24 major theatre awards in the UK since opening in July 2016 in London. It made its Broadway premiere in April 2018, and is the most awarded show of the season, winning 25 awards in total, including six Tony® Awards.

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.

  • Can I see Part Two without having seen Part One?

    You can, subject to ticket availability. However, we recommend that you see Part One first, as it would be difficult to understand Part Two without seeing Part One. It would be like beginning one of the books in the middle!

  • Do I have to see both parts?

    Part One will only be half the story, so the experience would be incomplete without seeing how the story ends. Likewise, if you only see Part Two, you may find it hard to follow the story.

  • Can I buy tickets for each part separately?
    • If seeing both Parts over consecutive performances does not work for you, you can choose to book both Parts separately and see Part One on a Wednesday matinee or Thursday evening and book Part Two on an alternative Wednesday evening or Friday evening at a later date. All subject to availability.
    • Alternatively, during the purchase process you will have the option to purchase just one part on Wednesday, Thursday or Friday performances if you wish to, subject to availability.
    • Those interested in purchasing a group of 10+ must purchase both Part One and Part Two. If you are interested in bringing a group to the performances, please contact our Curran team.
  • When will I receive my tickets?

    When purchasing tickets, you will have the option to select "Will Call" or "Print at Home - Digital Download." All tickets will be delivered 7 days prior to the event, and an ID matching the order name will be required for box office pickup.




Curran offers tickets in strict accordance with the Americans with Disabilities Act.

As a historic building that opened in 1922, Curran is unable to provide wheelchair access to the upper levels of the auditorium, therefore a number of accessible seats exceeding the requirement have been set aside in the Orchestra in rows N (on the house left side) and U (on the left and right sides). When the Orchestra is not on-sale in it's typical format, comparable seating is held. You may purchase these tickets online, however if there is any question as to which seats might work best for you, you are encouraged to call us at (415) 358-1220.

Plus-sized patrons may inquire about the location and availability of our swing-arm seats in the orchestra as well as freestanding armless seats in the accessible rows.

Those with mobility devices (canes, crutches, walkers, etc.) will need to check these items with a staff member to comply with local fire code regulations. At the end of the performance, an usher will return the device to the guest, or at intermission upon request.

We strive to accommodate all patrons to the best of our ability. Please try to arrive early if you need help with access so that our staff can be as attentive to you as possible.


As part of our renovation, we have added new restroom facilities. Fully accessible restrooms are located on the lower level of the theater. A lift in the lobby is available for patrons with mobility issues.

Audio Assisted Listening Devices

Devices are available at our boutique in the lobby on a first-come, first-served basis. We ask patrons to leave a state-issued ID or driver’s license as deposit on all devices.
