Two huge movie franchises, three people

Proctors has two shows coming up that are variations on the same theme: huge movie franchises... boiled down to performances by one or two people.

Potted Potter
This parody of the Harry Potter books -- "All seven Harry Potter books in seventy hilarious minutes" -- is performed by two guys. From the blurbage:

Potted Potter takes on the ultimate challenge of condensing all seven Harry Potter books (and a real life game of Quidditch) into seventy hilarious minutes. This fantastically funny show features all your favorite characters, a special appearance from a fire-breathing dragon, endless costumes, brilliant songs, ridiculous props and a generous helping of Hogwarts magic!

A NYT reviewer said the show's "flavor is Monty Python meets vaudeville." It's at Proctors from January 15-20. Tickets are $45 and up.

One Man Stars Wars Trilogy
This one-man show by Charlie Ross covers the original three Star Wars movies (perhaps because the second trio are self-parodies) and has been running for more than a decade. Blurbage:

Charlie Ross does it all--all the ships, planets, characters and music in one not-to-be-missed performance. The tour de force is with him!

It's at Proctors January 25-27. Tickets are $25.

Although it's outside the Capital Region and so naturally isn't included in the AOA listing, as ever I remind everyone that the Dutchess County Fair is the biggest of all NYS county fairs and worth the trip to Rhinebeck.
