Stage 42
422 West 42nd Street (between 9th and 10th) New York, NY 10036

Written and performed by two-time Olivier Award-nominated actors 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, but 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 suitable for the whole family, including grown-ups, Muggles and Squibs.



Clarkson and Turner have earned widespread acclaim and a fan base that crosses generations. It played five sold-out Fringe seasons in Edinburgh, five sold-out London runs and extensive U.K. and international tours. This is the first time Potted Potter has been performed in United States. The show has received rave reviews from The Guardian, The Daily Telegraph, Sunday Express, Daily Mail, Evening Standard and the Financial Times, as well as being a Time Out Critic’s Choice.
