    Potted Potter

    Austin's a stop for this travelling show, in which two fellows named Dan Clarkson and Jeff Turner take the Paramount stage and condense all seven Harry Potter books (and a game of Quidditch) into 70 minutes – you know, kind of like those popular Reduced Shakespeare gigs? But these guys are all J/K with J.K., sort of thing. "Even if you don’t know the difference between a horcrux and a Hufflepuff, Potted Potter will make you roar with laughter," allegedly.
    Nov. 13-18. Tue.-Fri., 7:30pm; Sat., 2, 5, & 8pm; Sun., 2pm.. $39-99.

    Great Expectations

Oh, and reviews this very show.
