Last week we attended Elf the musical at the 5th Avenue theatre. We love the holiday movie, it is amongst one of our favorites, so were eager to see how the musical would measure up. Unfortunately, the combination of awesome seats and free tickets wasn't enough to sway us into walking away impressed with the performance. We always enjoy an evening out together, we were grateful for the free tickets, but the performance was lackluster and the best part of the musical was the giant snow globe which was onstage before it started. Musicals are best left to the classics or a totally original idea.
