Based on the beloved holiday film, this hilarious fish-out-of-water comedy is now a must-see holiday musical. So it speaks so well to adding elaborate costumes and this gorgeous set and musical numbers. This modern day holiday classic is sure to make everyone embrace their inner elf!

We hear from Josie; we get to hear her side of things as we go along, rather than everything coming from the point of view of Buddy. The costume choices for these disheveled Santas — a deserving shout out to costume designer Melissa Torchia — were comically on point and the jazzy performers and props made the number a ton of fun.
