Harry Potter and the Cursed Child - San Francisco (Regional)

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 coming to San Francisco's Curran in the Fall of 2019. With record-breaking productions currently running in London and New York as well as an Australian production set to premiere in Melbourne in early 2019, 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.



Written by BAFTA, Tony and Olivier award-winner Jack Thorne and directed by Olivier and Tony award-winner John Tiffany, 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.

The fabled date is getting nearer!  For months, May 17 has loomed large in the calendar of London theatreland as the signal for playhouses to reopen their doors after a five-month lockdown - a period of closure that has, of course, been much longer in New York for the simple reason that London theaters did at least flicker partially to life last autumn.

When we think of choreography for the theatre, we imagine big dance breaks in classic musicals –and yet one of my first major choreographic opportunities was an expressionist, non-musical play. The process would introduce me to the variety of ways movement can show up in theatre (and film) beyond my narrow preconception of theatre choreography.

And they're off! London theatres have been open for several weeks now, and the reviews once again are coming hard and fast as a glance at this very site will confirm. Quick off the mark have been the smaller-sized shows: solo plays like Cruise or Harm or a three-person West End entry like Amy Berryman's Walden (though that title was beset by pre-opening dramas of its own, more of which below). But as the big musicals prepare their own re-emergence on to a scene marked out already by the producer Sonia Friedman's RE:EMERGE season (of which Walden is the first of three to open), excitement is in the air. The question now remains as to who, precisely, the audience is likely to be for these shows, given the difficulty for many in travelling to the UK.

In recent years, several Broadway shows have opened that are interesting adaptations of well known books and pieces of literature. Some of the most popular are Wicked, To Kill A Mockingbird and Harry Potter and the Cursed Child which have each amazed thousands of audience members in their own ways. But while looking ahead to the return of Broadway, it's fun to wonder about the other potential adaptations of books that could take the stage.
