Potted Potter: New Las Vegas Show Reenacts All 7 Harry Potter Books in 70 Minutes
Although the final book in J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter series, The Deathly Hallows, debuted all the way back in 2007, that hardly means dedicated fans are anywhere near over the beloved story of the Boy Wizard. Thanks to both the Harry Potter films and the more recent Harry Potter and the Cursed Child play, the tale of The Boy Who Lived will likely continue to be adapted for generations to come. And some are much more creative than others.
Case in point: a new parody show in Las Vegas is reenacting all seven Harry Potter books in less time than it takes to even watch one of the films. As reported by the Los Angeles Times, British acting duo Daniel Clarkson and Jefferson Turner have created a 70-minute play by the name of Potted Potter. The show ran off-Broadway and in London, among other locations, and is now being performed at Bally's in Las Vegas.
The pair of funnymen has apparently been “poking fun” at the character of Harry Potter for years, per the Los Angeles Times, with Turner spoofing the Boy Wizard, and Clarkson playing a variety of different characters throughout the seven books.
If you’re interested in checking out the show in Las Vegas, tickets are available for $40 to $100 (and you can buy them here). The creators will be starring in Potted Potter only through June 23 before another cast comes on.
