(The PIT, The Elektra Theatre, New World Stages)
Puffs’ exudes a jovial, winking fondness for all things Harry. For Potterphiliacs eager to revisit that world, that’s enticement enough.
Moon, Belton, and Earls are poignantly vulnerable and endlessly watchable.
Langston Belton, Julie Ann Earls, and Zac Moon are New York’s Best threesome that give Puffs its ample heart.

The Mysteries might be the most interesting thing to come out of the Bible in centuries.
The Bats give emotionally (and sometimes literally) naked performances as they boldly illuminate this millennia-old tale...There are too many brilliant moments to mention them all.
The New York Times write-ups: here and here!
Julie Ann Earls makes a sprightly Juliet, more ardent and moody than is sometimes portrayed, and with more backbone than one would expect of a cherished only child usually dutiful to her parents and nurse.Her articulation of the Early Modern English poetry Shakespeare writes is exceptional.
But the revelation of this production comes with Juliet, skillfully portrayed by Julie Ann Earls... With Earls’ earnest portrayal and the unflinching focus of this production, her suicide seems all too rational.
