Theatricum Hilarium! Highlights from "Harry Potter" Parody Potted Potter

Despite its extra-long title, Potted Potter: The Unauthorized Harry Experience – A Parody by Dan and Jeff, this unauthorized riff on the world of wizard Harry Potter is a compact theatrical experience (70 minutes!) now making its New York City premiere. The stories from all seven Harry Potter fantasy books are condensed (or "potted") and told on stage in a whirlwind of multiple, quick costume changes. Written and performed by Daniel Clarkson and Jefferson Turner, the comedy includes ridiculous props and frisky songs as well as a game of Quidditch in which audience members are asked to participate under a new set of rules devised by the creators. The production, a 2012 Olivier Award nominee for Best Entertainment & Family Show, continues through Sept. 2 at Off-Broadway's Little Shubert Theatre. For more on the show, click here.
