Elf, The Musical Jr.
Based on the 2003 Will Ferrell cinematic smash, Elf, The Musical Jr., is a comic Christmas classic for a new generation. Orphaned baby Buddy makes a fateful crawl into Santa’s sack of toys, and finds himself an unwitting resident of the North Pole. Raised among elves, Buddy grows up unaware of his roots—until his suspiciously sizable build and lack of toy-making prowess force him to acknowledge his own human-ness. With Santa’s permission, Buddy heads to the Big Apple to reconnect with his father and share his uniquely winning perspective on the Christmas season. With a score by Broadway stalwarts Matthew Skalr and Chad Beguelin (The Wedding Singer) and a book by Tony-winners Bob Martin (The Drowsy Chaperone) and Thomas Meehan (Annie, Hairspray, The Producers), Elf, The Musical Jr., instills the holiday spirit in audiences while underscoring the importance of being true to yourself, with or without pointy slippers.
An Egyptian art-deco style anchors the Cameo Theatre, luring wandering eyes with polychrome accents, gilt columns, and a sphinx that permits entry only after guests solve a riddle. A surviving artifact of the 1940s, the theater first opened as a home for vaudeville acts and movies but has since filled its stage with a diverse roster of legendary performers from B.B. King to Metallica, and it now regularly hosts theatrical productions.
