E-mail Print PDF

From Potted Potter:

The hit off-Broadway show Potted Potter: The Unauthorized Harry Experience – A Parody by Dan and Jeff returns for a 13 week engagement to off-Broadway’s Little Shubert Theatre (422 West 42nd Street) following a hugely successful North American tour.

Performances begin Thursday, May 30th and officially opens on Tuesday, June 4th.  This is a limited engagement through Sunday, September 1st, 2013.

Potted Potter is written and performed by Daniel Clarkson and Jefferson Turner with direction by Richard Hurst.  The creative team includes Simon Scullion (Sets), Tim Mascall (Lighting), Phil Innes (Music), Richard Hurst (additional material) and Hanna Berrigan (Associate Director).

Corey Ross/Starvox Entertainment and James Seabright/Potted Productions are the producers of Potted Potter: The Unauthorized Harry Experience – A Parody by Dan and Jeff.

In addition to being a critic's pick by the New York Times, New York Magazine and Time Out London, the show received the prestigious 2012 Olivier Award nomination for Best Entertainment & Family Show, playing to sold out houses worldwide.

Corey Ross, president of Starvox Entertainment said “After a wildly successful extended run at New York’s Little Shubert Theater last season, an incredibly successful national tour and an ongoing production in London, we are so excited to return to NYC where we were so warmly welcomed last year.  Potted Potter is a wonderfully entertaining time for all ages, both fans and neophytes of the Harry Potter phenomenon alike.”

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, 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.

New York Times exclaims the show is “Breathless and…HILARIOUS! And the Associated Press proclaims the show a “HIT!”  The London critics raved too.  Said the Daily Telegraph, “A fabulously funny parody…will tickle the funny bone of every age group.’  

The New York Post writes the show is  “…a zany hoot!” while Time Magazine for Kids simply declares that Potted Potter is " AWESOME show!"


Beginning April 20th, 2013 tickets will be available by calling Telecharge at (212)239-6200 and online at  Beginning May 9th tickets will also be available at the Little Shubert Theatre (422 West 42nd Street).  Tickets prices range from $39.99-$79.99.
