Any Harry Potter fan needs to check out this show.
A mixture of multiple Harry Potter books, A Very Potter Musical follows Harry (Darren Criss) through his time as Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. The evil Lord Voldemort (Joe Walker) comes back to power and Harry and his friends work together to take him down.
The greatest thing about this show is that it’s a show for Harry Potter fans written by Harry Potter fans. Future Glee star Criss helped write the music and plays the lead role with a bit of conceit. In this, Harry takes full advantage of his fame.
Lauren Lopez also shines as Draco Malfoy and will have you falling on the floor laughing. And, The Flash fans can catch Carlos Valdes playing bass.
Final say: If you haven’t seen this, you need to. ★★★★★
