The Drowsy Chaperone's Casey Nicholaw will direct and choreograph the Broadway-bound Elf—The Musical, which is based on the 2003 New Line Cinema film of the same name.
The production will play a limited holiday engagement at the Al Hirschfeld Theatre, according to the New York Times. Performances will begin in November and continue through New Year's Day.
Elf—The Musical features a score by The Wedding Singer's Matthew Sklar (music) and Chad Beguelin (lyrics) and a book co-authored by The Drowsy Chaperone's Bob Martin and Annie's Tom Meehan.
Will Ferrell starred in the 2003 film "Elf" about an oversized elf raised in the North Pole who arrives in the United States to find his true identity.
No casting has been announced for the Broadway run, although Christian Anderson (High Fidelity, Avenue Q) has played the Ferrell role in a previous reading.
