Andy Karl (On the 20th Century, Rocky) stars as Phil Connors, a cynical TV weatherman who reluctantly goes to cover a Groundhog Day event in Punxsutawney, PA, for the third year in a row. He then finds himself caught in a time loop, forced to repeat the same day over and over.
This new musical, based on the 1993 film starring Bill Murray, won rave reviews in its West End run. Ben Brantley of The New York Times said he "grinned pretty much all the way through this bright whirligig of a show."
The creative team includes Tony-winning director Matthew Warchus ( Matilda); music and lyrics writer Tim Minchin (Matilda); and Tony-winning choreographer Peter Darling (Billy Elliot, Matilda).
