“Harry Potter and the Cursed Child” Toronto Will Close in July
Harry Potter and the Cursed Child has bought magic to witches and wizards from across Canada since opening at the CAA Ed Mirvish Theatre in Toronto last year. However, the production will become the third of the seven versions to end when it closes its doors for the final time on July 2.
After 13 months and more than 425 performances, #CursedChildCAN will leave Toronto on July 2, setting a record for the longest-running professional play in Canadian history.

The show had a record-breaking run in Toronto, including having the highest weekly gross for a non-musical play in Canadian theater history. It made an estimated $750 million dollars for the City of Toronto during its time as the longest-running professional non-musical play in Canada.
Canadian producer David Mirvish shared his delight at how the production cast a spell over Canadian audiences to bring the industry back after the pandemic, while producers Sonia Friedman and Colin Callender described the Canadian production as “an extraordinary achievement.” Friedman and Callender also thanked all the cast and crew for their work on the show.
Having our production of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child at the CAA Ed Mirvish Theatre has been such a joy and we look forward to an amazing final 11 weeks in Canada.
This announcement comes during a time of questioning for Cursed Child as a whole, with the production in San Francisco, California, having closed in September and the production in Melbourne, Australia, also closing this July. Tickets for the production in Toronto are currently available until the closing date of July 2. Are you hoping to experience the magic one more time?
