The production, a 2012 Olivier nominee for Best Entertainment & Family Show, will officially open June 3 and continue through Aug. 12. Starvox Entertainment and Potted Productions present the U.S. premiere.
Written and performed by two-time Olivier Award-nominated actors Daniel Clarkson and Jefferson Turner, the play, according to press notes, 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."
The creative team includes director Richard Hurst, set designer Simon Scullion, lighting designer Tim Mascall, associate director Hanna Berrigan and production stage manager Gilda Frost with original music composed by Phil Innes.
Show times will be Tuesday at 7 PM, Wednesday at 2 PM and 7 PM, Thursday at 7 PM, Friday at 8 PM, Saturday at 2 PM, 5 PM and 8 PM and Sunday at 2 PM and 5 PM.
Alternate cast members David Ahmad and Richard Atwill appear at certain performances, including Saturday matinees at 2 PM.
Tickets, from $39.75 (including $1.50 facility fee), will be available online at Telecharge.com or by calling (212) 239-6200 beginning April 9. American Express exclusive presale begins April 4. Little Shubert Theater box office (422 West 42nd Street) will open May 7.
