Coming soon… Elf the Musical

November 11, 2010

My family is very big on festive traditions, and Christmas movies are always a huge part of getting into the spirit of things. We watch the classics (It’s a Wonderful Life), the kiddies (Muppet Christmas Carol) and even the more recent rom-coms (Love, Actually.) One that has made its way into our collection over the past couple of years is the charming Elf. Quirky, funny and Zooey Deschanel-laced, it really is worth a watch.

So I’m delighted to hear that a musical version is coming to Broadway,with songs by The Wedding Singer team Matthew Sklar and Chad Beguelin. Previews started 2nd November at the Al Hirschfeld Theatre and will will open officially on the 14th. The first production shots on BroadwayWorld look every bit as cartoony and kitsch as the film, and if it works I think it could be a great family show. West End transfer for next Christmas please!
