St. Paul, MN – The hit off-Broadway show Potted Potter: The Unauthorized Harry Experience – A Parody by Dan and Jeff premieres at The O’Shaughnessy at St. Catherine University in St. Paul, MN. Performances begin Wednesday, November 20th, 2013. This is a limited seven-show engagement through Saturday, November 23rd, 2013.
Written and created by former BBC Television hosts Daniel Clarkson and Jefferson Turner, Potted Potter 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.
Potted Potter is written and created by Daniel Clarkson and Jefferson Turner with direction by Richard Hurst. The creative team includes Simon Scullion (Sets), Tim Mascall (Lighting), Phil Innes (Music), Richard Hurst (additional material) and Hanna Berrigan (Associate Director).
In addition to being a critic's pick by The New York Times, New York Magazine and Time Out London, the show received the prestigious 2012 Olivier Award nomination for “Best Entertainment & Family Show,” and plays to sold out houses worldwide.
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 theatre. The fast-paced show, which has made audiences aged six to Dumbledore (who is very old indeed) roar with laughter all over the world, is perfect for the entire family.
The New York Times exclaims the show is “Breathless and…HILARIOUS!” The Associated Press proclaims the show a “HIT!” and The London Guardian declares it “Blissfully funny, a winner in every way. This show is a crowd-pleaser.”
The New York Post writes the show is “…a zany hoot!” and Time Magazine for Kids simply declares that Potted Potter is "...an AWESOME show!"
