ELF THE MUSICAL (musical - clue is in the
Ends 2nd January
Buddy is different from the other elves. Santa allows him to visit New
York city to discover exactly how... and why...
Based on the 2003 film, this family show stars Ben Foster and Kimberley
Professional reviewers are united in the opinion that it is quite entertaining -
but more than a little over-priced for a seasonal family treat. (The mainly)
rear-projected sets don't do much for the atmosphere on stage, and there are
long dead periods in the story.
Still, there is a lot of praise for Ben Foster as Buddy the misplaced human
elf, both for singing and comic ability. Kimberley Walsh as the love-interest is
also applauded (and not just for pulchritude). The music sounds OK, if not a
memorable song in the whole, and there are enough adult-oriented jokes for
parents to stay awake.
A decent enough family outing for those who can afford it, is the verdict,
but those who can't are not exactly missing the next "Matlida," is the feeling.
