Potted Potter Critics' Reviews

"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."

Review by Daniel M. Gold from The New York Times

"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."
