Time Out says
The entertaining 2010 Broadway musical adaptation of the Will Ferrell film comedy returns for a holiday run. No one can match Ferrell in the role of Santa’s least helpful helper, but the show follows the same hilarious tale of a human 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. In the show's latest New York encore run, George Wendt (Cheers) plays Santa.
