Critics’ Reviews

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.

Review by Tanner Stransky from Entertainment Weekly

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

Review by Robert Feldberg from

There’s been a Christmas miracle on Broadway, because the retooled 'Elf' that reopened last night is a startling improvement. Zippier and funnier, the show is now a bona fide treat.

Review by Elisabeth Vincentelli from The New York Post

The return of 'Elf,' which is at the Hirschfeld through Jan. 6, is just the thing for the Christmas list of any kid or grown-up. There's no telling when we'll see Buddy again in New York, but one can only hope it's the beginning of a holiday tradition.

Review by Peter Santilli from Associated Press

Beth Leavel, another returnee as Buddy’s stepmother, knows what to do with the many laugh lines her character is given in Thomas Meehan and Bob Martin’s book.
