Why See Elf?

Buddy is coming to New York City!

Grab your winter boots because Elf The Musical is coming to Madison Square Garden Theatre this December 13, and runs through December 29! Based on the beloved film hit, Elf features songs by Tony Award nominees Matthew Skylar and Chad Beguelin. This heartwarming musical follows Buddy the Elf on his adventure to find his real family, as well as bringing much-needed Christmas spirit to the city of New York.

This modern-day classic is sure to make everyone embrace their inner ELF!

What Is Elf About?

Buddy is a young orphan child who mistakenly crawls into Santa's sack of gifts and is taken back to the North Pole! Unaware that he is actually human, and not an elf like the rest of the community around him, Buddy's enormous size and poor ability to make toys cause him to face the truth. With Santa's permission, Buddy embarks on an adventure to New York City to find his real birth family.

On arrival Buddy notices that New York doesn't share the same outlook on Christmas as he does, Santa isn't real in their eyes. His Father Walter is a book publisher and is more concerned about his job, rather than his family. It's up to Buddy to inject the festive spirit into the city of New York, as well as bringing his family together to remember the true meaning of Christmas.

Did You Know?

In the original film, Buddy never reveals his real name. However, in this musical he does! What is it? Well, there's only one way to find out... You know what to do!
