Or: Seven Increasingly Eventful Years at a Certain School of Magic & Magic
EXTENDS OFF-BROADWAY THROUGH JULY 30, 2017
AT THE ELEKTRA THEATER DUE TO POPULAR DEMAND
PUFFS or: Seven Increasingly Eventful Years at a Certain School of Magic & Magic has extended through July 30, 2017 due to popular demand Off-Broadway at The Elektra Theater (300 West 43rd Street). PUFFS – presented by TILTED WINDMILLS THEATRICALS – takes a second look at everyone’s favorite world of wizards through the eyes of the Puffs, a lovable group of magical misfits. The sold-out sensation ran at New York’s Peoples Improv Theater from December 2015 through August 2016 and was called “a fast paced romp” by The New York Times. PUFFS is written by Matt Cox and directed by Kristin McCarthy Parker. Tickets are now on sale at www.PuffsthePlay.com.
When PUFFS officially earlier this season, it was praised by Entertainment Weekly as “packed with knowing winks to its source material and a heart all its own” and by The Huffington Post for its “rip-roaring staging, wit and delightful theatrical craft.” MTV News called it “equally laugh-out-loud funny and achingly tender.” Hypable said “come prepared to laugh, but also to cry. The draw is Matt Cox’s brilliant script and the cast’s comedic chops” while Metro US hailed it as “hilariously heartfelt.” Mashable raved “Puffs is, quite simply, hysterical.” According to Nerdist, “As surprised as I was by how much I laughed at Puffs, I was all the more surprised at how it actually moved me.”
Some people are born with the capacity to do great things. Some people change the world. Some people rise from humble beginnings to defeat the forces of darkness in the face of insurmountable odds. PUFFS is the story of the people who sit in class next to those people. Meet Wayne, a very average boy from New Mexico, who finds out he is a wizard... also, wizards are real. Join him and his new friends as they try to keep their heads down and get a basic wizarding education while a certain other famous boy with a very peculiarly shaped scar on his forehead sets out to make life at school increasingly... eventful.
When PUFFS debuted at The Peoples Improv Theater last season, it was celebrated as “a tremendous comedic feast” by The New York Theatre Review. Hypable called it a “totally awesome” and On Stage Blog hailed the show “the best comedy in town, as funny as any of the biggest comedies on Broadway.” Theater is Easy calls it “blissfully hysterical.”
The full company features Langston Belton, Madeleine Bundy, Jessie Cannizzaro, Nick Carrillo, Anna Dart, A.J. Ditty, Julie Ann Earls, James Fouhey, Jake Keefe, Andy Miller, Zac Moon, Eleanor Philips and Stephen Stout. PUFFS has production design by Liz Blessing and Madeleine Bundy, lighting design by Michelle Kelleher, costume design by Madeleine Bundy, sound design by Matt Cox and original music by Brian Hoes. Jumpstart Entertainment serves as general manager.
The show is produced by Tilted Windmills Theatricals, Stamatios Tom Hiotis, John Paterakis, George Stephanopoulos and Jonathan Feinsilver, in association with GG Entertainment, Invisible Wall Productions and Eric Kelhoffer, and Stephen Stout and Colin Waitt. It was originally produced at The Peoples Improv Theater by Stephen Stout and Colin Waitt, and developed in part during a residency with the University of Florida, School of Theatre + Dance, Jerry Dickey, School Director.
PUFFS or: Seven Increasingly Eventful Years at a Certain School of Magic & Magic is currently being performed on Fridays at 7:30 PM; Saturdays at 3:00 PM and 9:30 PM; and Sunday at 3:00 PM. The show is at The Elektra Theater (300 West 43rd Street, New York, NY 10036). Tickets, which are available at www.PuffsthePlay.com, are $51.50-$61.50 with $76.50 premium seats available.
