Washington, D.C. — Potted Potter, The Unauthorized Harry Experience – A Parody by Dan and Jeff will return to Shakespeare Theatre Company to entertain the District’s witches, wizards and muggles. The New York and West End smash hit will play at Sidney Harman Hall (610 F Street NW) from April 3 through April 15, 2018.
Created by actors Daniel Clarkson and Jefferson Turner, the Olivier Award-nominated show takes on the ultimate challenge of condensing all seven Harry Potter books and a real life game of Quidditch into 70 hilarious minutes. It features all the leading characters, a special appearance from a fire-breathing dragon, endless costume changes, fantastic songs, ridiculous props and a generous helping of Hogwarts magic!
This fantastically funny show has played to sold-out houses all over the world, garnered rave reviews and been awarded the Critics’ Picks from the New York Times, New York Magazine, Time Out London, Boston Globe, Chicago Daily Herald and the New York Post. Even if you don’t know the difference between a Horcrux and a Hufflepuff, Potted Potter will make you roar with laughter and is the perfect family fun for all ages.
