My husband and I both thought this sounded like a fun show. To our dismay, it turned out to be anything but fun. My advice to anybody considering attending is - don't bother. No idea how this has gotten rave reviews. The 'humor' was on the level of the middle school class clown, and that's being kind. Most of the 'props' looked like they'd been bought at a garage sale. And, of course, there was the obligatory political jokes. Please, we did NOT pay to hear you joke about politics or to watch you act were supposed to ENTERTAIN us for 70 minutes with a parody of Harry Potter. You failed miserably. If I could have given this 1/2 star, I would have done so.

Don’t waste your money on a ticket!! This is community theatre at best with a big ticket price! The actors broke character (laughing to themselves), they mumbled (in trying to deliver lines too quickly) and they jumped the shark in bringing politics to the performance. I was underwhelmed and disappointed! Save yourself the $$ and moments of your life you can never get back!! ZERO STARS

I am admittedly a Harry Potter fanatic, so I was really looking forward to this show. I wanted to laugh, but it wasn’t funny. I wanted to be entertained, but it wasn’t entertaining. The ‘humor’ was geared toward ten year olds and their parents. I am neither a ten year old nor a parent. If you hadn’t seen the Harry Potter movies before going to the show (like my husband), you would never WANT to see them after sitting through this. It was a frenetic, confusing mess. The venue, however, was lovely, and there was beer, wine and mixed drinks for sale, so....there’s that.

My wife bought us tickets to this show for my Birthday as we are both big fans of the series. I was SUPER disappointed... A two man cast runs around the stage, frantically flipping through the books attempting to recap the entire story, one of them pretending to not know a single thing about Harry Potter the entire show, the other a know it all (which got real old, real fast)... The humor was extremely juvenile, slap stick, and largely prop based (crappy wigs, hats, glasses, stuffed animals, squirt guns, silly string, etc...). Obviously intended for a very young audience. I mean, they actually used hand puppets several different times!! The little kids in the audience were all into it, of course, laughing and obviously assumed by the antics of these two clowns (one throws water in the other's crotch). I was definitely expecting something a little more witty and mature with a higher level of production value... Instead we got 'Sesame Street' goes to Hogwarts. My advice: Save Your Money!

I am an HP fan and was extremely disappointed in this show. Props seemed like were bought from dollar store and the 2 actors kept making fun of how cheap they were and how unorganized the show was.. well it wasn’t funny to me spending $60+ per ticket and seeing crap. Acting was forced and awkward. 70 min of awkwardness and amateur work not HP :(

1.0 star rating Simon from Las Vegas, Nevada


They are both good actors… but this is an amateur dramatics skit at best. Lacking a script and substance. A real shame. Many years ago I watched potted Shakespeare and that was brilliant…. Sadly (and 220 dollars later) this was not.

1.0 star rating Paula Greeley from Las Vegas, Nevada


Our family LOVEs Harry. But we couldn’t pretend that this was even tolerable. So cringe. Go see Beatles LOVE.
