Written and performed by Daniel Clarkson and Jefferson Turner with direction by Richard Hurst, the production began previews May 30. Performances continue through Sept. 1.
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, according to Clarkson and Turner’s unique set of rules."
The creative team includes Simon Scullion (sets), Tim Mascall (lighting), Phil Innes (music), Richard Hurst (additional material) and Hanna Berrigan (associate director).
Corey Ross/Starvox Entertainment and James Seabright/Potted Productions are the producers of Potted Potter: The Unauthorized Harry Experience – A Parody by Dan and Jeff.
Corey Ross, president of Starvox Entertainment, said in a previous statement, “After a wildly successful extended run at New York’s Little Shubert Theater last season, an incredibly successful national tour and an ongoing production in London, we are so excited to return to NYC where we were so warmly welcomed last year. Potted Potter is a wonderfully entertaining time for all ages, both fans and neophytes of the Harry Potter phenomenon alike."
