DUBAI: If the Muggle in you has been craving some wizardry and magic, a Harry Potter stage show may be just what the doctor ordered. The “Potted Potter” play — a 70-minute parody that summarizes all the major plot points of the seven Harry Potter books — is headed to Dubai this October. Fans can expect two shows a day on Oct. 22 and 23 at the Theatre by QE2.
Playing to sold-out theaters all over the world, the Olivier Award-nominated “Potted Potter” has been created by and stars Daniel Clarkson and Jefferson Turner. From a live Quidditch game and a fire-breathing dragon to all the major characters from the beloved book series by J.K. Rowling, the show aims to be a treat for both Harry Potter fans and newbies alike.
The show was staged at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in 2006 and has had two off-Broadway runs over 30 weeks, along with five West End runs and has also traveled to Las Vegas, Canada and Australia.
Tickets to the show start from AED140 ($38).
