Matt Cox’s Harry Potter spinoff Puffs or Seven Increasingly Eventful Years at a Certain School of Magic and Magic hits the silver screen May 9 and May 12 in U.S. movie theatres, courtesy of Fathom Events. For a complete list of theatre locations, click here.
The Off-Broadway sensation, now playing at New World Stages, began at the Peoples Improv Theatre before transferring to the Elektra Theater in downtown Manhattan. It made the leap to its current home in July last year.
In the theatre community, the Puffs fandom has become as rabid as the Harry Potter fandom before it, and the screening is the answer to broadcasting the story of the ”Puffs,” the more ignored house at a certain wizarding school, to a wider audience.
Puffs was filmed over two performances in February. The current staging stars Langston Belton, Madeleine Bundy, Jessie Cannizzaro, Nick Carrillo, A.J. Ditty, Julie Ann Earls, James Fouhey, Andy Miller, Zac Moon, Eleanor Philips, and Stephen Stout.
The show, directed by Kristin McCarthy Parker, was originally produced by Stephen Stout and Colin Waitt and is currently produced by Tilted Windmills Theatricals’ John Arthur Pinckard and David Carpenter.
