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 :(

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.

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

I'm a fan of the series and understood the jokes. The problem is that they were not clever and the props were greatly disappointing. It was more of a clown act fit for children. A $15 cover charge would have sufficed given the lack of production value.

This was not a very good show. The acting, the production, the script, were all very basic. It felt like a rehearsal of a high school performance. There is potential for something good there, but they need to invest some time and money into the show.

My husband and I have waited over a month to come see this show and we were so excited; especially since we'd been playing Hogwarts Legacy. If you want to be robbed blind have at it, but this has got to be the poorest excuse of a Harry Potter parody that could have ever been created. In fact, it had no direction to it whatsoever. Very hard to believe it was anything more than two amateur "actors" performing an improv. I seriously felt so bad for everyone who spent even more money getting dressed up in their best HP house outfits for this. This was a complete insult to HP fans everywhere. I thought there was something wrong with me! Not funny at all.. very hard to understand at times too with how fast they were talking. One of the chapters they go through is a lame slideshow presentation. Nothing more than 2 guys running around in wigs using stuffed animals as props. Save your money. Dinner before and ice cream after were far more entertaining than this.
