Rowling’s “Harry Potter” books was published in the UK. The scarred and bespectacled boy wizard’s popularity is virtually immeasurable and his adventures fill the pages of 7 total books - which have been the basis for 8 feature length films. As with anything – if there is anything – as popular as Harry Potter, the creativity doesn’t stop there – or even with officially sanctioned <a href="http://www.universalorlando.com/harrypotter/">theme parks</a>. Fans of the world Rowling created continue to retell and re-imagine the stories through fan-fiction, music, and theater.</p><p>In <a href="http://www.pottedpotter.com"><em>Potted Potter</em></a>, two actors, Daniel Clarkson and Jeff Turner, comically and energetically deliver Harry Potter’s story on stage in 70 minutes. 7 books in 70 minutes. In their production – which was nominated for an Olivier award in London and has toured globally – Jeff Turner plays Harry, and Daniel Clarkson plays <em>everyone</em> else.</p><p> Fri, 11 Jan 2013 16:12:00 +0000 Sarah LaDuke 55479 at http://wamc.org 2 actors, 7 books, 70 minutes: Potted Potter in the GE Theatre at Proctors
