Potted Potter returns to W/E for Easter
Preview by Lizzie Guilfoyle
AS PART of their sell-out world tour, two-time Olivier nominated double-act, Daniel Clarkson and Jefferson Turner (Dan and Jeff), are returning to the Garrick Theatre with Potted Potter.
Potted Potter: The Unauthorised Harry Experience ‐ A Parody by Dan and Jeff will play for a strictly limited Easter holiday season – from March 23 to April 14, 2013.
Once again, Dan and Jeff take on the ultimate challenge of potting all seven Harry Potter books into seventy madcap minutes. They are helped by endless costumes, brilliant songs, ridiculous props, a generous helping of Hogwart’s magic and the audience, which is invited to join in with a real-life game of Quidditch!
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 is an entertaining and hilarious experience.
Dan and Jeff have earned widespread acclaim and a fan base that crosses generations. Potted Potter played five sold-out Fringe seasons in Edinburgh, five sold-out London runs and extensive UK and international tours prior to its critically-acclaimed US premiere at the Little Shubert Theatre in New York in 2012.
The Potted shows have recently been nominated for two Olivier Awards – Best Entertainment and Family Show for Potted Potter‘s 2011 run at the Garrick Theatre and Best Entertainment Show for Potted Panto at the Vaudeville Theatre in 2010.
