Elf the Musical is the show that finally got my husband to go to the theater with me!
And he quite enjoyed himself.
Of course, it’s hard NOT to enjoy yourself when Buddy is around. Though the story differed quite a bit from the original movie, it offered a great deal of new humor and fun songs to enjoy. And of course, the sets were simply gorgeous.
I thought it was particularly clever how the elves were portrayed, though I felt sorry for all those actors spending that much time on their knees. Ouch!
It didn’t seem to bother them at all, though!
Two favorite parts: when Buddy first meets Walter Hobbs and sings to him (this scene in the musical is 10x funnier than in the movie!) and what Buddy does after he asks to borrow the Salvation Army worker’s bell. Hilarious stuff!
It’s not too late to go laugh your Christmas socks off, too! Today, Sunday the 6th, there are two showings at Atlanta’s Fabulous Fox Theater: One at 1:00 pm and the other, at 6:30 pm, and seats are still available.
So don’t be a cotton-headed ninny-muggins and miss out!
