Suffering withdrawals from the wizarding world experienced by Harry Potter and friends? Whether you're an avid reader of the series – or you've seen all the movies – it's time to check out Potted Potter: The Unauthorized Harry Experience – A Parody by Dan and Jeff at City Theatre in Detroit, Mar. 1-17, 2013.

Critics from both sides of the pond agree it's a smashing success, with rave reviews from the New York Times and London's Daily Telegraph. You don't want to miss this hugely entertaining show, written by former BBC Television hosts Daniel Clarkson and Jefferson Turner.
