Now THAT’S Something New and Entertaining: Potted Potter
Whether you’re a diehard fan of Harry Potter, or you’ve never seen/read it, if you like things that are funny, this show is for you.
The website explains the show like this:
“PLAYING TO SOLD OUT HOUSES all over the world, the Olivier Award nominated POTTED POTTER – The Unauthorized Harry Experience – A Parody by Dan and Jeff takes on the ultimate challenge of condensing all seven Harry Potter books (and a real life game of Quidditch) into seventy hilarious minutes. Even if you don’t know the difference between a horcrux and a Hufflepuff, POTTED POTTER will make you roar with laughter.
Created by two-time Olivier Award-nominated actors Daniel Clarkson and Jefferson Turner, Potted Potter is perfect for ages six to Dumbledore (who is very old indeed).”
The Hennepin Theatre Trust website further explains:
“This fantastically funny show features all the favorite characters, a special appearance from a fire-breathing dragon, endless costumes, brilliant songs, ridiculous props, a generous helping of Hogwarts magic and a real-life game of Quidditch in the theatre!”
The critics seem to like it, too:
“A fabulously funny parody. Will tickle the funny bone of every age group.” –The London Daily Telegraph
“It’s the single funniest thing I have seen in ages. You’re gonna love this show!” –Toronto Star
