Elf Tickets

  • About Elf

    Elf: The Musical has returned to the Al Hirschfeld Theatre on Broadway for a holiday run through January 6. Adapted from the smash-hit 2003 movie, this rollicking show has plenty of laughs and lots of razzle-dazzle, with a score by Wedding Singer songwriters Matthew Sklar (music) and Chad Beguelin (lyrics) and a book by Tony Award winners Bob Martin (The Drowsy Chaperone) and Thomas Meehan (Annie, Hairspray, The Producers). With its mixture of jokes, toe-tapping songs and exhilarating choreography, Elf is a fun and festive theatrical experience sure to brighten any family’s holiday season.

    Poor Buddy thinks he’s an elf, and how could he know any different? As a motherless infant, he made his way into Santa’s sack on a Christmas Eve 30 years ago and was raised by the little folks at Santa’s workshop at the North Pole. But as we learn at the beginning of Elf: The Musical, while Buddy is brimming with elfish happiness, he’s hilariously incompetent at tasks like toy-making – and he’s way too big to fit in with the others. Before long, he discovers he’s a human, and sets off on an odyssey to find his real father in New York City. The innocent Buddy discovers a tough town in dire need of Christmas spirit. His Dad’s on the naughty list and his stepmother and half-brother don’t even believe in Santa. Despite some humorous setbacks, by the show’s end -- with Buddy’s help -- everyone is aglow with holiday cheer.

    Starring Jordan Gelber in the role of Buddy (made famous in the movie by Will Ferrell) and Wayne Knight of Seinfeld fame as Santa Claus, Elf brings together a range of talents from Tony winners to new faces making their Broadway debuts. The cast includes some familiar faces from TV shows such as Boardwalk Empire, Curb Your Enthusiasm and The Sopranos.

    Run time
    Approximately two hours, with one 15-minute intermission.
