Did you already know that Harry Potter Makeup Brush Wands are a thing? Yes? Cool. This is the play for you. Puffs is a twisted, relentlessly-paced expression of Potter devotion. Imagine fan-fiction occurring in realtime, performed by a cast with an improv comedy sensibility. In 90 high-energy minutes, Puffs chronicles all seven years of the Harry Potterverse, told through “the Puffs.”
In Puffs, everyone and everything is a riff on JK Rowling’s masterwork…or at least what the writer’s lawyer felt comfortable with. Puffs has every memorable character, but with new names and exaggerated personalities, ready to deliver a hit parade of inside jokes. Narrator A.J. Ditty keeps it moving, making sure we understand the Puffs universe.
For real Potterheads, Puffs delivers. It’s a crackpot take on a beloved wizarding world. So strap in muggles, and crack a Butterbeer™, cause these Puffs get lit.
There's a reason it won the 2017 Tony Award for Best Musical. It doesn't get fresher and more relevant than this!
