UPDATED: “Cursed Child” San Francisco Performances Canceled for Rest of January

The Dark Lord strikes again: The San Francisco production of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child has suspended all remaining performances for January because – you guessed it – there have been some breakthrough COVID-19 cases.

The production posted a media statement on the official Harry Potter and the Cursed Child Facebook page, explaining that the rest of January’s shows will be canceled “out of an abundance of caution” and that performances are expected to resume on February 1.

The post also added that the health and safety of “our company, theater staff and audience is our primary concern.” Even though we are sure many are disappointed that the remaining shows for January have been canceled, we are happy to see that the production takes the health of everyone on board seriously.



Luckily, the reopening isn’t too far away, and ticket holders for the rest of January’s performances are encouraged to contact their point of purchase to discuss exchange and refund options.

We are looking forward to performances resuming on February 1. Have you attended a Cursed Child production recently? What was it like? Let us know in the comments.

UPDATE (January 27):

Performances have now been canceled through February 1 and are expected to resume on February 2.

Growing up, I was a massive fan of Harry Potter and my love for the stories grew as I got older. It’s no surprise then that I love writing about all things Potter related. When I’m not writing about all the magic, you’ll find me reading (probably something Harry Potter related), listening to music, or writing some songs.
