Daniel Clarkson and Jefferson Turner’s “Potted Potter: The Unauthorized Harry Potter Experience”
Don’t have time to read all seven books in the J. K. Rowling series? These two (yes, just two) Olivier Award-nominated actors will take you from beginning to end with 360 characters, a game of Quidditch and a dragon in tow in a few hairs over an hour.
You know the locations of all of the horcruxes, can name every Defense Against the Dark Arts professor, have practiced all the spells—from accio to wingardium leviosa—and sorted yourself into your favorite Hogwarts house (Ravenclaw!), and you still haven’t had enough of Harry Potter? Sounds like you need to go see Potted Potter: The Unauthorized Harry Potter Experience at the Tarrytown Music Hall on May 5. There, two Olivier Award-nominated actors, Daniel Clarkson and Jefferson Turner, act their way through all seven Harry Potter books in just 70 minutes. Throughout the show, they manage to incorporate 360 characters, a fire-breathing dragon, and a game of Quidditch—all in less time than it takes for a Slytherin to find the Room of Requirement.
