Review: ‘Potted Potter’ fails to cast a spell over Minneapolis

"Potted Potter" didn’t have some of the props you’d normally expect from a "Harry Potter" reenactment show.

The dangerous Forbidden Forest was a painted beach scene with black lettering that warned to "KEEP OUT" and the final Battle of Hogwarts featured a sing-off of "I Will Survive" complete with a disco ball and colored lights.
