Recommendation: A Very Potter Musical

A reader recommends…

A Very Potter Musical
What it says on the tin.

Everybody likes musicals, everybody likes laughing, everybody likes Harry Potter.
I think genderfork is also probably especially theatre-inclined, and some of the roles are deliciously genderbending.

    this thing is epic.
    Lauren Lopez as Draco Malfoy. And in the sequel, Joe Walker as Prof. Umbridge.

    I haven’t seen the original, but from the snippets I’ve heard of the sequel, it seems that all the jokes that revolve around Umbridge are reeeealy transphobic. So I’ve been hesitant to watch this.


    Leonard replied:

    I suppose you could take it as transphobic.
    but really, I just find it very amusing. It takes the piss out of a lot of things, so you can’t really take anything personally.

    I agree with Leonard. The musical is awesome. The sequel isn’t as good but it is still funny. I reckon that the whole Umbridge thing can be considered transphobic but I don’t think it was meant to be. Just don’t analyze it.

    i submitted this before watching the sequel, actually. in addition to being incredibly douchey about umbridge, the sequel also just kind of sucks. it’s bad enough that they’re doing crass transphobic humor, but they’re not even clever at it.

    i still recommend this, though.
