A critic's Pick by the New York Times, New York Magazine, and Time Out London, the show has also
won the prestigious 2012 Olivier Award for “Best Entertainment & Family Show”; playing to sold out
houses worldwide.

Said Corey Ross, president of Entertainment, “After a wildly successful extended run at New York’s
Little Shubert Theater we are delighted to finally hit the road.” Adding., “Potted Potter is a wonderfully
entertaining time for all ages, both fans and neophytes of the Harry Potter phenomenon alike and we
are planning for even more tour dates into 2013.”

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, 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 perfect for the entire family.

The London critics raved too. Said the Daily Telegraph, “A fabulously funny parody…will tickle the
funny bone of every age group.’ The N.Y. Times exclaims the show is “Breathless and…HILARIOUS!
And the Associated Press proclaims the show a “HIT!” The N.Y. Post writes the show is “…a zany
hoot!” while Time Magazine for Kids simply declares that Potted Potter is "...an AWESOME show!"
