After beginning performances in San Francisco October 23, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child officially opened at the Curran Theatre December 1.

The two-part play is the eighth official installment in J.K Rowling’s Harry Potter series—the only one to be performed on stage. The work is penned by Jack Thorne, based on a story by Rowling, Thorne, and director John Tiffany. The open-ended engagement begins after a five-month transformation of the Curran Theatre, similar to that of the Lyric Theatre production on Broadway.
