BWW Review: Touring ELF: THE MUSICAL at The Paramount Looks the Part but Lacks the He Photo BWW Review: Touring ELF: THE MUSICAL at The Paramount Looks the Part but Lacks the Heart
by Amelia Reynolds - Dec 7, 2017

A musical adaptation of the 2003 Christmas movie 'Elf' makes a lot of sense: the movie has all of the joy, sweetness, glitz, slapstick, and happily-ever-after for a crowd-pleasing production. This adaptation, now performing for a brief stint at The Paramount Theatre, stays loyal to the vast majority of the content in the movie. Many of the lines are verbatim. Thomas Meehan and Bob Martin's adaptation has tweaks here and there to leave room for elaborate musical numbers (many of which have some fun choreography), but the premise is the same: Buddy is on a quest to find his dad, reconnect with him, and, in the process, revive New York City's (and, indirectly, the world's) lost Christmas spirit.

BWW Review: FIRST DATE BROADWAY MUSICAL at Booth Playhouse
by Linda Ann Watt - Oct 12, 2016

FIRST DATE Broadway Musical is a musical with a book by Austin Winsberg and music and lyrics by Alan Zachary and Michael Weiner. Based around the concept of a blind date, these first daters bring tons of baggage, which gets kicked around metaphorically onstage with truly funny and witty words and song.
