Lovely, lovely."  This intriguing staging of one of Puccini's greatest works brought the packed house at the Forum Theater to its feet on October 14, 2018.

Puffs

The hit off-Broadway show already enjoyed by over 20,000 people just got a little bit more off-Broadway-er. Puffs transfers to a new production at New World Stages beginning July 2017. 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.       

Puffs, or: Seven Increasingly Eventful Years at a Certain School of Magic & Magic is a Potter-inspired comedy for anyone who has ever felt like a secondary character in someone else’s story.
