Choreography by director Peggy Hickey is spectacular, with a variety of dance styles, all carried off enthusiastically by the entire cast, including the 16-member ensemble playing North Pole elves and New Yorkers.

fell in love with Elf The Musical when its 2016 National Tour stopped in SoCal a couple of Christmases back, and it's an honest-to-golly, holly-jolly holiday treat to see it again in Long Beach. Get ready for Buddy The Elf to steal your heart too.

Fortunately, the Musical Theatre West team knows how to keep an audience happy, glossing over structural problems by sustaining the spirit of irrepressible optimism that has always been this story's chief stock in trade.

The team has brilliantly guided their actors into the world of fanciful holiday children's book frivolity... While the musical may not be as subtly constructed as the film, this production's sweetness and sparkle is just right for Christmas time.
