Potted Potter Recommended The Short List (Theater) Closing (Theater and Galleries)

When: Tuesdays-Sundays. Continues through Jan. 3 2016

Cowritten and performed by British comic actors Daniel Clarkson and Jefferson Turner, this 70-minute romp takes us through the high points of all seven Harry Potter books. The comic style is loose and glib, full of silliness and variations on classic physical comedy bits. But the show is also well grounded in Potteriana (not surprising, inasmuch as it started out as a brief entertainment for crowds queued up to buy copies of Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince). Clarkson and Turner know their Potter backward and forward, a fact that left my 11-year-old daughter and many other well-versed fans giggling throughout the show. The duo have that strong comic chemistry one associates with teams like the Smothers Brothers, Martin & Lewis, and Peter Cook and Dudley Moore. —Jack Helbig
