If you love Harry Potter, you likely already know about the Curran Theater's semi-permanent installation of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child Parts I & II. But if you're on the fence about whether or not to buy your tickets, I have one word for you—go! With it...

It boils down to this—every element of the show (the script, actors, direction, etc.) was executed to perfection, it just didn’t move me. If you are looking for a good rendition of a classic absurdist play, go ahead and buy a ticket. But if you’re just looking for a da...

What sets this version of Vanity Fair apart, however, is playwright Kate Hamill’s marvelous retelling of the story, which sheds light on William Makepeace Thackeray’s “novel without a hero” in unique and often surprising ways. The play isolates two questions from the...

Dear Evan Hansen is a show about now. About every person who has ever felt lonely or left out or insecure—it’s about all of us. Deftly bringing the social media age to the stage, this show feels modern and real in a way that few other musicals have been able to capture...

There is little that can make me happier than a good old-fashioned musical. 42nd Street Moon’s production of Me and My Girl is just that, a delightful romp through 1930s England with loveable characters and peppered with fun songs. The show follows the story of East-...

Lyrical, thought provoking and poignant, the current show from A.C.T. at the Geary Theater is the moving play, Father Comes Home From the Wars (Parts 1, 2 & 3). Half historical fiction and half references to the Odyssey, this play is timely and interesting, if a little...

Get ready to go-go mad for Head Over Heels, the new Go-Go’s musical currently running a pre-Broadway engagement at San Francisco’s Curran Theater. This show is an enchanting romp through Elizabethan language and ‘80s girl-power anthems. That may seem like an odd combin...
