Time Out says
You and your kids already love Elf, the movie. Now see Santa's most unhelpful helper live onstage in the Off Broadway incarnation. Unfortunately, Will Ferrell doesn't play the role of Buddy, but the musical follows the same hilarious tale of an orphaned boy raised as an elf at the North Pole. His confused identity leads him to a wintry New York City, where he sings and dances his way through Central Park and Rockefeller Center in search of his family.
