Attention all muggles: “Potted Potter” returns to Washington, D.C. at the Shakespeare Theatre Company’s Sidney Harman Hall this spring. Whether you’re a Quidditch expert or merely a novice, you’ll find laughs aplenty in this comedy that takes on the zany challenge of cramming all seven books in the popular Harry Potter series — that’s roughly 4,000 pages — into 70 hilarious minutes. Created by Olivier-nominated actors Dan Clarkson and Jeff Turner, “Potted Potter: The Unauthorized Harry Experience — A Parody by Dan and Jeff” has played to sold-out houses all over the world. Two actors inhabit 360 characters, fend off a live fire-breathing dragon and even manage to stage a real-life game of Quidditch in the theater. The show was a critic’s pick of “The New York Times”, “Daily Herald” and “Time Out London”, among others, who hailed it as a must-see family event for anyone age 6 to Dumbledore.
