All aboard the Hogwarts Express! There’s no denying that your muggle blood hasn’t wanted to hop on that train since Day One of J.K. Rowling’s sensational Harry Potter series. But magic can’t bring back the thrill of the first time you relished the lines of a quidditch match, rooting for team Gryffindor to triumph. Luckily, we have something to brighten up those hindered spirits — even if it lacks in wizardry. British improv comics Daniel Clarkson and Jefferson Turner have teamed up to spoof the series in Potted Potter, also billed as The Unauthorized Harry Experience. The two-man show, starring two actors (one of whom portrays an obsessed, all-knowing HP fan and the other unknowledgeable about HP, at times confusing the series with The Lord of the Rings and The Chronicles of Narnia) condenses and parodies parts from all seven books of the series for a funny 70-minute show.
