It’s been four years since part two of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, the finale of the series, was released. So why not turn to former BBC hosts Daniel Clarkson and Jefferson Turner for a different kind of magical thrill? Together, they’ve created a parody that sums up all seven Harry Potter books in a 70 minute set that’s as ridiculous as it is entertaining. (Anita Overcash)
The Unauthorized Harry Experience – A Parody by Dan and Jeff is 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 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 roar with laughter all over the world, is perfect for the entire family! seasonal packages only (single tickets on sale soon)http://blumenthalarts.org
