Potted Potter Tickets

Written and performed 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.

This show is closed.

Performances ended on Sep. 1, 2013.

What Is the Story of Potted Potter?
Potted Potter takes on the ultimate challenge of condensing all seven Harry Potter books (and a real life game of Quidditch) into 70 hilarious minutes. Even if you don’t know the difference between a horcrux and a Hufflepuff, Potted Potter will make you roar with laughter.

Off-Broadway Bestsellers Plays Comedy

"This parody makes the perfect claim for the Twitter age: all seven books — roughly 4,000 pages — in 70 minutes. You don’t need to know all the plot twists and nuances of Hogwarts to enjoy the in-jokes. If you miss something, another laugh will be along shortly. Clearly Mr. Clarkson and Mr. Turner attended Professor Flitwick’s charms class, because the duo casts the perfect spell over the audience: Reductio ad absurdum."

The New York Times

Daniel M. Gold

"The unauthorized parody, written and performed by Daniel Clarkson and Jefferson Turner, skips goofily along the surface of its beloved source material in a production that draws heavily on the British tradition of family-friendly theater known as pantomime. As it happens, Clarkson and Turner are old hands at panto - and more than capable of drawing shouts and chants and giggles from the audience."
