What Is the Story of Elf?
Elf begins at Santa’s North Pole workshop when one of the elves, Buddy, learns that he is not actually an elf; he’s human. When Santa tells Buddy the whereabouts of his birth father, Buddy heads to New York City hoping to reconnect with his dad. His father turns out to be a cranky workaholic who wants nothing to do with Buddy or his Christmas-loving antics. Buddy however develops a bond with his step-mother, half brother and a beautiful Macy’s co-worker and helps restore the lost holiday spirit of his jaded New York family.

Broadway Musicals Comedy

"Newcomer Mitchell Sink, as the jaded-turned-believer Michael, possesses a downright shocking voice for an adolescent—'voice of an angel' would not be an overstatement."

Entertainment Weekly

Tanner Stransky

"Wayne Knight, who played the vile Newman on 'Seinfeld,' provides some welcome grit in his rendering of Santa Claus."
