Elf – The Musical, a musical stage adaptation of the 2003 eponymous motion picture is coming to the Fox Theatre!
The musical features an impressive ensemble of artists who bring to life the hilarious tale of Buddy, a young orphan child who crawls into Santa’s bag of gifts by mistake and finds himself being transported back to the North Pole. Being completely unaware that he’s human and not an elf, he eventually faces the truth due to his enormous size and poor toy making abilities. Buddy then takes Santa’s permission to go to New York City to find his birth father, discover his true identity, and help the city remember the true meaning of Christmas. The production made its Broadway debut at the Al Hirschfeld Theatre on November 14th 2010 and had a run of 15 preview and 57 regular performances. It broke 3 Hirschfeld box office records, grossed over a million dollars in one week, and was the third highest grossing show of the 2010 Thanksgiving weekend (behind Wicked and The Lion King). The musical’s success spawned another Broadway production at Al Hirschfeld over the 2012 holiday season. 2015 saw a new West End production of the musical opening at the Dominion Theatre in London, UK. The musical was nominated for the 2011 Drama League Award for Distinguished Production of a Musical.
Don’t miss your chance to see the modern day Christmas classic that’s sure to make everyone embrace their inner elf!
