We were expecting a BIG Christmas show when we went to Elf on Broadway. And we got that and much much more!
Under the expert direction of Casey Nicholaw, who also did Book Of Mormon, Elf featured huge sets and lots of spectacle - from ice skating on stage to snowing in the theater!
A stellar cast brings the beloved film to life on stage, but the two standouts were Leslie Kritzer as Jovie, the female love interest, and she brings the house down in Act II with her powerhouse vocals in her showstopping number, and also - kinda stealing the show - Mitchell Sink, the little boy with big voice who plays Elf's little brother.
What we loved the most about Elf was the music! Perhaps because we read that the same team did The Wedding Singer on Broadway, we had really low expectations. But Elf featured some top-notch song! Truly memorable! A+!
Elf is a family show that appeals to all ages and will give you lots of bang for your buck! It's everything we love about big Broadway shows! It's a must-see!
