George Wendt Is …. Elf - On Broadway

It’s no accident we didn’t put an exclamation point in this headline…we’re REALLY skeptical about this.

Elf opens at the Al Hirschfeld Theatre on November 10. We're pretty sure we've got other plans that day.

Film-To-Broadway adaptations can be troublesome, and this is no exception. As we mentioned back in December, we’re struggling with mustering any kind of enthusiasm for this. What could they possibly do to make it NOT lame?

Well…here’s the one thing that is has going for it: George Wendt.

He played a lovable alcoholic on Cheers, he tackled the role of Edna in the recent Broadway adaptation of Hairspray, and now he’ll be taking over Ed Asner’s role as Santa Claus.

Guess we’ll see how this one plays out, but it just seems kind of pointless. What unnecessary Film-To-Broadway adaptation is next? Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time: The Musical?

What do U think would be the WORST Film-To-Broadway adaptation?
