As you all may or may not know, I am a HUGE fan of a certain School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. I’m also a fan of Broadway and Off-Broadway shows. Since 2017, My daughter and I have been checking out different plays and shows and it’s always been amazing! Each one brings out emotions and in the case of PUFFS: the musical, Pure endless comedy…
Quick Synopsis of the play:
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!” This clever and inventive play “never goes more than a minute without a laugh” (Nerdist) 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 with a thing for badgers “who are so lovable and relatable, you’ll leave the theater wishing they were in the stories all along” (Hollywood Life). Their “hilariously heartfelt!” (Metro) and epic journey takes the classic story to new places and reimagines what a boy wizard hero can be.
From the moment they started the play till they said their last chant, my family and I were in giggles. The jokes were age appropriate (considering the recommended age is 8), but not too childlike that adults didn’t burst into laughter. I was happy that the play truly focused on giving you the backstories and reasons behind many things that had to do with the Hufflepuff house. Aside from that, you got to see what happened with the house that apparently never came in first.
Ticket prices are great and range from $37 – $72. Be sure to grab yours Here! Now tell us, Are you a true Potter fan? Which house were you sorted In?
