STUPEFY! THE 90 MINUTE HARRY POTTER – Returning to St. Louis in May!
It’s like I always say: “Why read the book when you can see the movie?”, and in the case of Harry Potter I say “Why see eight films when you can see STUPEFY, THE 90 MINUTE HARRY POTTER !?” Now, I don’t need to read the Harry Potter books because I was lucky enough to have seen STUPEFY, THE 90 MINUTE HARRY POTTER when it played at Lindenwood last fall. All of the performances were sold out but there is good news for Potter fans. STUPEFY is back for an encore run, this time at The Regional Arts Commission right here in St. Louis!
The Harry Potter saga was presented so fast that the lunatics at The Magic Smoking Monkey Theater group are bringing him back for an encore run of their hilarious play. STUPEFY, THE 90 MINUTE HARRY POTTER is a fast-moving stage production that is a parody of all eight Potter movies and if you’ve seen the Magic Smoking Monkey gang’s previous skewers of Star Trek, Star Wars, Lord of the Rings, Glen or Glenda, or The Abominable Dr. Phibes, you may know what’s in store. These guys stage the most gut-busting spoofs imaginable and you’ll never look at Harry Potter quite the same way when their done. All 8 movies in 90 minutes! Will Voldemort win? Will they find the Horcruxes in time? Will Ron EVER freakin’ kiss Hermione? You never know what will happen once this series receives the “Monkey” treatment…
The performances of STUPEFY, THE 90 MINUTE HARRY POTTER are May 10 & 11, 17 & 18 at 7:30pm and 10:30pm, that’s Friday and Saturday, at 7:30pm and 10:30pm.
