Built in 1922, the Curran has housed some of the biggest productions in theater history and has maintained a reputation over the course of its life as one of the premier live entertainment venues in North America. Now, almost a century after it welcomed its first Bay Area audiences, the Curran has just completed a major restoration and renovation.
Our goal has been to create a new kind of artistic hub here in San Francisco—one that engages new and existing audiences, and attracts the most visionary artists in the world, by presenting bold, daring work. The Curran continues to search the globe for the kind of works we’ve always dreamt would play this stage.
