Elf the Musical Information

Based on the beloved 2003 New Line Cinema hit movie, Elf returns to New York City this festive season to play a limited engagement at The Theater at Madison Square Garden.

"Cheers" star George Wendt is also set to reprise his performance as Santa Claus - the role he originated in the original 2010 Broadway premiere production. Elf promises, once again, to be the most "Sparklejollytwinklejingley" show in town!

Elf 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.
