About The Event
For seven years a certain boy wizard went to a certain Wizard School and conquered evil. This, however, is not his story. This is the story of the Puffs... who just happened to be there too. A tale for anyone who has never been destined to save the world.
The New York Times proclaims PUFFS, "A FAST PACED ROMP" through the 'Seven Increasingly Eventful Years at a Certain School of Magic and Magic'. For POTTERphiliacs who grew up alongside Potter and are eager to revisit that world, PUFFS exudes a jovial, winking fondness for all things Harry!"
In the true Very Popular spirit, this clever and inventive play never goes more than a minute without a laugh, giving you a new look at a familiar adventure from the perspective of three potential heroes just trying to make it through a magic school that proves to be very dangerous for children. Alongside them are the Puffs, a group of well-meaning, loyal outsiders who are so lovable and relatable, you'll leave the theater wishing they were in the stories all along. This hilariously and heartfelt journey takes the classic story to new places and reimagines what a boy wizard hero can be.
"Exudes a jovial, winking fondness for all things Harry."
Thew New York Times
"Puffs illustrates the heights to which underdogs can soar."
"Packed with knowing winks to its source material and a heart all of it's own."
