About Eva Longoria and Sid Ganis
Eva Longoria has worked consistently in Hollywood for over twenty years and has cemented herself as an entertainment industry staple known for her work both in front of and behind the camera. An award-winning actress, director, producer, entrepreneur, philanthropist, and activist, Longoria has been leading the charge of diverse and female representation since her starring role in the hit ABC series Desperate Housewives (2004–2012). 

Through her production company UnbeliEVAble Entertainment, Longoria has become one of the most significant trailblazers in representation and recently renewed her overall deal with 20th Television. Founded in 2005, the company actively chooses purposeful projects that accurately represent the stories of the Latinx and other underrepresented communities. It was also recently announced that the company will partner with ViacomCBS’s Entertainment & Youth Group for their First Time Directors program highlighting BIPOC and women filmmakers to produce fifty films across the group’s portfolio of networks and streaming services. 

Longoria has directed countless hours of television and is currently preparing to direct three feature films: the biopic Flamin’ Hot for Searchlight; the workplace comedy 24/7 for Universal Pictures in which she will executive produce and star opposite Kerry Washington; and the female action comedy Spa Day for Sony Pictures. 

Recently named by People magazine as one of the Women Changing the World, Longoria is a dedicated philanthropist and activist who has consistently lent her voice to the issues she is passionate about, ranging from immigration to STEM education. Committed to empowering Latinas everywhere, Longoria established the Eva Longoria Foundation (ELF) in 2012 to help Latinas build better futures for themselves and their families through educational programs, scholarships, mentorship, and entrepreneurship. She is a founding member of Time’s Up and cofounder of Latino Victory Fund, Momento Latino, and Poderistas. Longoria has also been the face of L’Oreal Paris for over 15 years. A native of Texas, Longoria currently resides in Los Angeles with her family. 

Sid Ganis (Honorary Trustee) began his career in marketing and publicity at several studios, including 20th Century Fox, Columbia Pictures, Seven Arts, and Warner Bros. He eventually joined Lucasfilm, where he served as Senior Vice President and was responsible for marketing The Empire Strikes Back (1980), Return of the Jedi (1983) and the first two installments of the Indiana Jones trilogy. In 1986, Ganis joined Paramount Pictures and eventually would become president of the Motion Picture Group, where he helped launch Top Gun (1986) and Fatal Attraction (1987). As president, he oversaw the development and production of the worldwide hit Ghost (1980) and bought the underlying rights to Forrest Gump (1994), which would go on to become one of Paramount’s biggest hits—both financially and critically—of all time. After leaving Paramount in 1990, Ganis became president of marketing and distribution at Columbia Pictures. He was eventually made vice chairman of the studio. In 1996, he stepped down to produce films through his independent production company, Out of the Blue…Entertainment.

Ganis has advised leading US entertainment and technology companies including Dolby Laboratories, Nokia, and The Void and has also served on the Boards of Marvel Entertainment, FIND (Film Independent) and, Berkeley Art Museum/Pacific Film Archive and San Francisco’s SF FILM. 

Ganis joined the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences in January 1968 and served as President of the organization for four consecutive terms (2005–2009).

A longtime supporter of the Academy Museum, Ganis served as chair of the Board of Governors’ Museum Committee (2018–2021) and has been integral to securing the future of the Academy Museum. Several gifts to the project have been made in his honor including an endowment by the Hobson/Lucas Family Foundation underwriting free admission to the Academy Museum in perpetuity for visitors ages 17 and younger and a gift to the general education fund from Dr. Kathy Fields and Dr. Garry Rayant (in honor of Sid Ganis and Nancy Hult Ganis).

Harry Potter and the Cursed Child returns to the stage with reimagined productions beginning at New York’s Lyric Theatre Nov. 16; San Francisco’s Curran Theatre Jan. 11, 2022 and Toronto at the Ed Mirvish Theatre May, 2022.

London, England – Cursed Child will soon be triumphantly returning to the stage in New York and San Francisco, while Toronto will finally open its show next year. For all three productions, the two-part original has been boldly reimagined as one singular performance upon its big comeback.

Today, we bring exciting news for Harry Potter fans and theatre-goers alike. Across the pond, the magic of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is set to return to theatres with reopening dates for North America now confirmed! The show will return in New York, San Francisco, and premiere in Toronto as a newly staged, single play experience with more magic per minute. Expect the show to keep all the amazing illusions with some enchanting new staging. Here are the all-important dates you need to know.

New York – Returns to the Lyric Theatre November 16
San Francisco – Returns to the Curran January 11
Toronto – To premiere at the Ed Mirvish Theatre May, 2022

Pre-sale tickets for New York will begin rolling out on 7th July for Gold Members, 8th July for Harry Potter Fan Club members, and with public sale soon to follow on the 12th. San Francisco Gold Members will have their chance at a pre-sale on Wednesday 14th July, 15th July for Fan Club members and a public sale date on 21st July. If you’re based in Toronto, ticket dates will be announced at a later date – so keep looking out.

When the play returns to the stage across the US and Canada, it will be the same exciting story meticulously restaged by the show’s original creative team during lockdown. So, naturally, audiences will now only need one ticket to see the production in North America, at one performance during an afternoon or evening. And for those wondering – the equally thrilling original two-part production of Cursed Child will continue to run in London.

Sonia Friedman and Colin Callender said: “We are delighted to announce that Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, which since its triumphant opening in New York and San Francisco has seen record breaking numbers of people spellbound by the wizardry on stage, will be returning in North America in a new, re-imagined version that audiences can see in one afternoon or evening.

This is an unprecedented moment in theatre history. After being closed for more than 15 months, almost all of Broadway and theatre across North America will return before the end of the year. Given the challenges of remounting and running a two-part show in the US on the scale of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, and the commercial challenges faced by the theatre and tourism industries emerging from the global shutdowns, we are excited to be able to move forward with a new version of the play that allows audiences to enjoy the complete Cursed Child adventure in one sitting eight times a week.

Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is already the longest-running two-part play in Broadway history. The new version of the play has the potential to thrill audiences for many years to come.

Though the global shutdowns were awful and devastating on so many levels, they afforded us, as theatre-makers, the rare opportunity to reunite with our award-winning creative team who fully embraced the challenge of creating a new single part version of the play that would be a compelling theatrical experience in its own right and stand shoulder to shoulder with the original two-part version. It’s been the most wonderful process of rediscovery to bring this new spectacle to life while still delivering all the amazing magic, illusions, stagecraft, and storytelling set around the same powerful narrative, that has enthralled audiences and critics alike.

Bringing Harry Potter to the stage to cast its spell on audiences in North America has been an extraordinary journey. We want to thank our creative team, associates, cast, crew, and all those who have tirelessly worked on the production for their unflagging support and commitment as we embark on the next leg of our journey.

Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is a story about community, family, and the power of friendship, a story that reminds us that together and united we have the strength to overcome all odds. It’s a story of our time and we can’t wait to share this new version of our play with our amazing audiences in North America. We’ve missed you enormously and look forward to welcoming you back to Hogwarts. That’s the magic of the theatre—It’s every bit as alive as the portraits hanging on Hogwarts’ walls. Because for all of us… it’s time to believe in magic again.”

The show’s creators Jack Thorne and John Tiffany reflect: “We are incredibly excited to be returning to the US with this reimagined Harry Potter and the Cursed Child. We’ve been working hard on this new version throughout lockdown and it’s been a joyous process of rediscovery. It has given us a unique opportunity to look at the play with fresh eyes and we have been inspired by the entire creative team every step of the way.”

J.K. Rowling, who conceived the eighth Harry Potter story with Thorne and Tiffany added:

“Collaborating on Harry Potter and the Cursed Child has been one of the great joys of my professional life. While no one would wish for what has happened over the last year, it has given Jack, John and the first-class creatives who first breathed life into the production the opportunity to revisit the play, and to find a new way to frame our story — with amazing illusions and some exquisite new staging— all the while keeping our original story intact. I’m so proud to be associated with this new, reimagined version, and to be able to welcome back audiences to the Lyric, Curran and Ed Mirvish theatres.”
