Seeing as it’s the holiday season we thought it was the perfect time to talk about one of the newsest festive institutions: ‘Elf: the Musical.’ As we explore The Story of Buddy the Elf and his efforts to save Christmas they rate all the differences between the musical and the film, Jimi paints a picture about the insane Arena tour in the UK and we wonder if Warner Bros. Theatricals will be able to take on Disney Theatrical Group in the fight for Corporate Broadway!
