ELF THE MUSICAL IS THIS HOLIDAY SEASON’S MUST-SEE!
ELF the Musical on tour is the hilarious tale of Buddy, a young orphan child who mistakenly crawls into Santa’s bag of gifts and is transported back to the North Pole. Unaware that he is actually human, Buddy’s enormous size and poor toy-making abilities cause him to face the truth. With Santa’s permission, Buddy embarks on a journey to New York City to find his birth father, discover his true identity, and help New York remember the true meaning of Christmas. This modern day Christmas classic is sure to make everyone embrace their inner ELF.
The New York Times says that ELF is “SPLASHY, PEPPY, SUGAR-SPRINKLED HOLIDAY ENTERTAINMENT!”
USA Today calls ELF, “ENDEARINGLY GOOFY!”
Variety proclaims, “ELF is happy enough for families, savvy enough for city kids and plenty smart for adults!”
Based on the popular movie, starring Will Ferrell, Bob Newhart, Zooey Deschanel and James Caan, ELF The Musical ran on Broadway for both the 2010-11 and 2012-13 holiday seasons before taking its tidings of good cheer overseas and on tour.
