Pot­ted Pot­ter

Time Out Malaysia Kids - - Culture -

Pre­sented by Olivier award nom­i­nees Daniel Clark­son and Jef­fer­son Turner, ‘Pot­ted Pot­ter’ am­bi­tiously con­denses all seven ‘Harry Pot­ter’ books into a 70-minute par­ody that will have the whole fam­ily roar­ing with laugh­ter. Malaysia is the troupe’s only stop in South­east Asia this year, so be sure you catch what prom­ises to be a highly en­ter­tain­ing per­for­mance. Fun fact: ‘Pot­ted Pot­ter’ be­gan as five-minute street per­for­mances, but were so pop­u­lar that Dan and Jeff de­cided to put to­gether an hour-long show, the first of which pre­miered ten years ago. Since then, this renowned theatri­cal per­for­mance has not only per­formed in venues all around the UK, but also on in­ter­na­tional stages in­clud­ing South Africa and Mex­ico. The play has also picked up the Best En­ter­tain­ment Award in the 2011 Olivier Awards and is a New York Times Critic’s Pick. ‘Pot­ted Pot­ter’ aside, Dan and Jeff have co-writ­ten and per­formed in ‘Pot­ted Pi­rates’ and ‘Pot­ted Panto’ to crit­i­cal ac­claim.
