Critically Acclaimed “Potted Potter” announces USA Tour All Seven Harry Potter Books in 70 Hilarious Minutes Hits the Road


New York - Starvox Entertainment and Potted Productions’ hit off-Broadway show, Potted Potter: The Unauthorized Harry Experience – A Parody by Dan and Jeff is hitting the road this fall in America. Special engagements will include a wide range of cities across the nation, wherever “Harry Potter” fans exist; from Chicago (on sale this Friday Aug. 17th ) to Detroit; Bangor, Maine; Hartford, Connecticut and more.

A critic's Pick by the New York TImes, New York Magazine, and Time Out London, the show won the prestigious 2012 Olivier Award nomination for Best Entertainment & Family Show; playing to sold out houses worldwide. Said Corey Ross, president of Starvox Entertainment,“After a wildly successful extended run at New York’s Little Shubert Theater we are delighted to finally hit the road.” Adding., “Potted Potter is a wonderfully entertaining time for all ages, both fans and neophytes of the Harry Potter phenomenon alike and we are planning for even more tour dates into 2013.”

Written and performed by former BBC Television hosts Daniel Clarkson and Jefferson Turner, the play 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.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 London critics raved too. Said the Daily Telegraph, “A fabulously funny parody…will tickle the funny bone of every age group.’ The N.Y. Times exclaims the show is “Breathless and…HILARIOUS! And the Associated Press proclaims the show a “HIT!”
The N.Y. Post writes the show is “…a zany hoot!” while Time Magazine for Kids simply declares that Potted Potter is "...an AWESOME show!"
So what are you waiting for!? Now is the time for all good Potter fans across America to discover this hilarity for firsthand!
