Bill Murray, Barrett Doss & Andy Karl

Last Tuesday, Bill Murray, who made the iconic role of TV weatherman Phil Connors famous in the 1993 film, went to see Groundhog Day on Broadway and he LOVED IT! Then, the next night, he went again…

Pictured on the right with the two fabulous Broadway leads: Barrett Doss (Rita) and Andy Karl (Phil).

Sopan Deb, culture writer for the New York Times, covered the event in hilarious detail, in threaded tweets, before writing it up:

GhD New Artwork

Groundhog Day has announced that it will play its final Broadway performance on Sunday September 17th, 2017.

An 18-month US tour is scheduled to begin next year and details of a much clamoured for London return will be announced in the coming months.

The show’s producers said: “It has been a joy to share Groundhog Day over and over again with Broadway audiences. We could not have asked for a more magnificent, devoted company to bring Danny Rubin’s heartfelt words, Tim Minchin’s dynamic score, and Matthew Warchus’ ingenious direction to the August Wilson Theatre stage every night. This Punxsutawney family has been through a lot together and as Groundhog Day heads into its final month of performances in New York, we are so proud to be part of a Golden Age of musicals on Broadway.”

Groundhog Day tickets can be purchased here. Grab them while you can!

Further information about the show can be found on the Groundhog Day The Musical Page, including videos, tickets, the Original Cast Recording and you can DOWNLOAD the Lyric Book.

Tomorrow…
