“Potted Potter: The Unauthorized Harry Experience” takes all seven books of the bestselling series, a live game of Quidditch and condenses it all into a 70-minute comedy. The show is written and performed by two-time Oliver Award-nominated actors Jefferson Turner and Daniel Clarkson. Turner and Clarkson play 360 Harry Potter characters between the two of them. This show is a must-see for Harry Potter fans or anyone who has ever wondered why there is so much hype to the series.
