About Elf - The Musical:

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.

Music by Matthew Sklar, Lyrics by Chad Beguelin, and a Book by Thomas Meehan & Bob Martin

Our Elf - The Musical Review

“The Story of Buddy the Elf” is back in town and once again delighting New York family audiences this holiday season. One of the main themes of Elf – The Musical is the importance of bringing the Christmas spirit back to a downtrodden, overworked and gloomy population of Americans that we call typical New Yorkers. Well, it does as exactly what it says on the tin, as they say.
