Elf on Broadway

Elf the Musical is sure to bring in a great number of the seasonal Broadway crowds. The popularity of the film helps but what really will be a draw is the correlations between the stories' New York City theme which is steeped in Christmas spirit. The main character Buddy, an orphan who ends up being one of Santa's helpers, certainty isn't the brightest bulb in the shed. Still it is Buddy's spirit, which drives the story. Once he finds out, he is human and seeks to find his father in New York the magic behind Buddy comes to life. While discovering his father, step brother and almost all of New York City no longer believe in Santa nor Christmas The one time "elf" sets forth his mission to return the spirit and meaning of the holiday. The musical is filled with many great landmarks of the "Big Apple" including Empire State Building (where Buddy's father works), the skating rink at Rockefeller Center and even the Macy's department store. Elf is a fantastic fit for a new holiday season show in New York City.


Elf is under the direction of Casey Nicholaw with songs by Matthew Sklar (music) and Chad Beguelin (lyrics) most well known for their work on "The Wedding Singer." The book is by Bob Martin ("The Drowsy Chaperone") and Thomas Meehan ("Annie"). The choreography is handled by Nicholaw, set design by David Rockwell, lighting by Natasha Katz, and costumes by Gregg Barnes. Song highlights include "Sparklejollytwinklejingley,"which pleasantly highlights the first act. Furthermore, worth note is the giddy number “Nobody Cares About Santa,” which features a chorus line of professional Santas sharing a Christmas Eve meal at a Chinese restaurant. The number is a hilarious parody of the popular Radio City Rockettes show.

While the critical response has been mixed, most agree the production is a high value. The musical is tightly scripted, has wonderful and clever set designs and amazing costumes, which bring the holiday spirit alive on the stage. While cynics may try to bring down the show as just another "mechanical" production to rake in on New York's holiday spending the bottom line is that fun new holiday shows like "Elf" are always welcome and adored by the holiday visitors. If looking for a funny family show that is balanced enough to provide great entertainment to adults and children of all ages than Elf tickets are sure to be a hit.
