See Puffs, a hit Off-Broadway show, at New World Stages.
For seven years a certain boy wizard went to Wizard School. This, however, is not his story. This is the story of the Puffs…who just happened to be there too. A play for anyone who isn't destined to save the world, for sidekicks, reserves, backups. “An alternative narrative for the underdog” (Wall Street Journal).
Puffs, or: Seven Increasingly Eventful Years at a Certain School of Magic is a Potter- inspired comedy for anyone who has ever felt like a secondary character in someone else’s story. The play that “never goes more than a minute without a laugh” (Nerdist) gives you a new look at a familiar adventure from the perspective of three new heroes just trying to make it through magic school. Alongside them are the Puffs, a group of well-meaning, loyal rejects "who are so lovable and relatable, you’ll leave the theater wishing they were in the stories all along” (Hollywood Life). Their “hilariously heartfelt!” (Metro) and epic journey takes the classic story to new places and reimagines what a boy wizard hero can be.
