  Elf The Musical Reviews

Star Tribune - Highly Recommended

"...The cast channels many of the performances from the film. Like Ferrell, Kopec imbues Buddy with wide-eyed innocence and open emotion, but delivers them in a bigger and broader fashion. Kopec has a gorgeous singing voice that recalls a young Matthew Broderick. A natural, he leads a competent ensemble. Barth is delightful as Michael. Hosack lends the mother a common-sense touch. And Jen Bechter gives Deb, Walter's assistant, both sass and pizazz in a show that leaves you with a sugar high."

Twin Cities Daily Planet - Recommended

"...Matt Kopec, playing Buddy, does a wonderful job of bringing the childlike qualities of Buddy to the life, despite following Will Farrell, who will always be Buddy in the minds of most who have seen the movie. Drew Pulver as Buddy's dad Walter, Julia Louise Hosack as Emily the sympathetic mom, Connor Barth as Buddy's brother Michael, and Kate Hennies as Buddy's love interest all do an admirable jobs as they help Kopec move the story along."

Twin Cities Pioneer Press - Highly Recommended

"...Yes, "Elf" is based on the 2003 film with Will Farrell as a lanky human on Santa's toy-making team, but the musical adaptation by Matthew Sklar and Chad Beguelin (with book by Tony winners Thomas Meehan and Bob Martin) more than stands alone: Even hardcore devotees of the movie might rethink how it ever worked without the songs."

How Was The Show - Highly Recommended

"...Need a little “Sparklejollytwinklejingley” this Christmas season? Looking for an overload like indulging in an entire plate of Christmas cookies? I’ve got just the thing: take someone who could use a little Christmas to the Broadway musical, “Elf,” showing through December at the Ordway Theater. You’ll come out smiling and laughing, stuffed with cozy feelings. Nothin’ wrong with that! Even I, the sometimes Broadway Musical grouch, will admit it’s delightful!"
