Theater Review: Fulton's "Elf" an enjoyable family experience

While tap-dancing elves and jazz hands may not be everyone’s choice of entertainment on a typical Wednesday night, the Fulton Theatre’s production of “Elf” was certainly enjoyable for me and my family. The musical, which runs at the theater from November 17 to January 3, 2016, was filled with energy and Christmas cheer.

Written by Thomas Meehan, the premise of the story begins with Buddy, a human child who crawled into Santa’s toy bag many years ago and was raised at the North Pole by elves. The would-be elf is completely unaware that he is a human, until his enormous size and poor toy-making abilities can no longer be ignored. Hoping to find his real family and discover his true identity, Buddy sets off on a journey to New York City to find his birth father, move Dad off the naughty list, and help New York rediscover the true meaning of Christmas.

The harmonies were beautiful, the dancing was phenomenal, and the acting was sublime, as to be expected at the Broadway-caliber Fulton Theatre. The show is filled with hysterical one-liners and jokes, some of which had me nearly crying from laughter. 

So if you’re in for a knee-slapping, toe-tapping, belly-laughing good time filled with Christmas cheer and “ho-ho-hos”, get your tickets for “Elf” at the Fulton. I promise you won’t regret it- “Even the biggest Cotton-Headed-Ninny-Muggins will leave the theater with a warm festive glow!”
