Shakespeare Theatre Company’s ‘Potted Potter’ Only Shines When Unscripted

Watching “Potted Potter” at Shakespeare Theatre Company’s Sidney Harman Hall is a bit like opening the yard-long scroll that serves as the show’s program: ridiculous, excessive and tangentially related to “Harry Potter.” Billed as “all seven ‘Harry Potter’ books in 70 minutes,” “Potted Potter” is surprisingly rife with non-Harry Potter[Read More…]
