5.0 star rating Stage-lover from Suburban Philly, Pennsylvania


I loved Chris in The Buddy Holly Story and now he's Buddy again in Elf. Chris possesses a character with body movements and facial expressions that convince us that we're privileged to get to share in the story and make it part of our own legacy. I honestly didn't know what to expect with this show...and in fact were prepared to be ho-hummed as we were with the movie Elf. But we loved it because of the energy and sheer joy that is on stage. It's a holiday show that delivers and will endure, I'm sure. I'm planning to see it again and will bring a few fairy-tale loving friends with me.

The entire cast, the staging, the choreography, the voices, orchestrations and so on and so on ....outstanding and a thrill to watch. I work at a library and told s o many patrons to drop everything and get tickets pronto! !. I still can'tt get over Buddy and the exquisite cast who backed him up. ...Kevin , Roger, Cam, Dara ....all of you...congratulations! I'm seeing you guys again. Talent and laughter abounds. And, James, I'm still laughing

Excellent performance by all cast members

5.0 star rating Ami DePierro from Raleigh, North Carolina


"Elf: The Musical" is a joyous spectacle that earns its five stars with ease. Max Chernin shines as Buddy the Elf, infusing the stage with infectious energy. Jim Bray's dual roles as Mr. Greenway/Santa are doubly delightful, and Sean Allen Krill's standout performance as Walter Hobbs adds to the brilliance. The entire cast's talent, coupled with charming choreography, creates an unforgettable holiday experience. A magical escapade filled with laughter, heartwarming moments, and festive spirit - a must-see for a perfect dose of seasonal cheer!

4.0 star rating Leslie from Richmond, Virginia


Loved it! Loved the music, dancing and fun. Definitely different from the film, but refreshingly so. Special kudos to the vocals of the young man who played Michael. His voice was incredible! The actor who played Buddy was perfect for the role. Deb was a hoot (and quite a dancer!) and Jovy also had some dynamite pipes. Enjoy and don't take it too seriously. It is light hearted fun and you will walk away smiling. What more could you ask for? Would have given 5 stars but felt the main Santa was rather bland and a bit of a disappointment and I found Emily's character in the play odd.
