Rave Reviews For Potted Potter – The Unauthorized Harry Experience
Potted Potter – The Unauthorized Harry Experience will be here before we know it! The show plays McGlohon Theater at Spirit Square Oct. 15-20. CLICK HERE to buy your tickets now for this hilarious show, which has been playing to sold out houses all over the world.
In a review posted last week in The Washington Post, the show was deemed a hit. “In the case of Potted Potter, the laughing people are under no magic spell, nor does anyone slip them a potion. It’s just the anarchic influence of British improv comics, Daniel Clarkson and Jefferson Turner,” explains reviewer, Jane Horwitz.
Horwitz goes on to say the two leads make for the perfect mix. “Clarkson plays the tall, gangly twit who admits he hasn’t actually read any of the Harry Potter books. Turner plays the slight, serious Potter fanatic, panicked by his colleague’s lack of preparation.”
According to the review, you don’t have to be a Harry Potter connoisseur to enjoy the show either!
“So how much Potternalia do you need in your brain to enjoy Potted Potter? Some familiarity with Harry, Hermione, Ron, Dumbledore, Hagrid, Snape, Voldemort, et al., will come in handy, of course. But the show skip-ropes its way through Harry’s world. It sparks much more off the antics of two loose-limbed rascals in an array of bad wigs.” CLICK HERE to read the full review.
The play takes on the ultimate challenge of condensing, or “potting,” all seven Harry Potter books into 70 madcap minutes, aided only by multiple costume changes, brilliant songs, ridiculous props and a generous helping of Hogwarts magic.
The show also invites audiences to engage with a real life game of Quidditch, but according to Clarkson and Turner’s unique set of rules.
Whether you camped outside a bookstore for three days awaiting the release of the “Deathly Hallows” or you don’t know the difference between a horcrux and a Hufflepuff, the comedy, magic and mayhem of Potted Potter makes for an entertaining and hilarious visit to the theater. The fast-paced show, which has made audiences ages 6 to Dumbledore (who is very old indeed) roar with laughter all over the world, is perfect for the entire family! Buy your tickets HERE!
