Christopher Sutton is sensational in Elf,
Nov 30, 2013
reviewer: 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.

It was ok. Not spectacular but not awful either.,
Dec 14, 2013
reviewer: from Detroit, Michigan
This is something you should take your children to see if you want to share a theatre experience with them...NOT a date night for adults. It did not compare on any level to the movie and left us wondering what happened. It is not that the cast did a bad job...but elf was such a hysterical movie the musical just did not meet our expectations. This would be a nice family play to watch with your kids if you have young children but would recommend something else for a more adult crowd or for those looking for a proper rendition of the Elf movie with Will Ferrell.

Children's play ????,
Dec 22, 2013
reviewer: from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
So disappointed by the adult language and sexual innuendos in a "children's theme play" . Not appropriate for young children on so many levels,especially the whole "not believing " story line.

Disappointed mom,
Dec 30, 2013
reviewer: from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
The show was funny and entertaining at times, but my husband and I were disappointed with the unnecessary use of foul language, adult humor and sexual innuendos. We wanted to enjoy a Christmas show with our 3 children without having to explain sexual content on the drive home!! We'll stick to the movie version with Will Ferrell......
