Talk about your merry and bright -- the charm-filled Christmas musical that broke box office records on Broadway is coming to town. Based on the hit 2003 movie starring Will Ferrell, this funny and heartfelt show follows the pointy-shoed footsteps of William "Buddy" Hobbs, who was raised as an elf in Santa's workshop and grows up -- and up, and up -- before finally discovering that he's actually human. So Santa sends Buddy on a quest to meet his human family, where it turns out the happy-go-lucky guy has to help them -- and the whole city of New York -- remember the true meaning of the season.

- "This is not your father's La Bohème. But it works." --The Washington Times
- "There are some wonderful things going on here visually.... Above all, there is a strong enough theatrical flair at work throughout the venture to deliver the most important elements of Bohème more or less intact." --The Baltimore Sun
- "Conductor Emmanuel Villaume shapes the work with love, lyricism, and an unfailing sense of proportion. The casting is strong, and better than that when Vittorio Grigolo is onstage...." --The Washington Post
