Last month, Tim performed ‘Hope’, a song from Groundhog Day The Musical, at the 2017 Olivier Awards.

Groundhog Day won Best New Musical and Andy Karl won the Olivier for Best Actor in a Musical for his performance as Phil Connors. The ceremony was held at the Royal Albert Hall and screened by ITV.

So, here’s Tim sporting that fetching Friar Tuck beard, backed by some of the cast of the Old Vic production and the BBC Concert Orchestra:
(The backing was for the song not the facial hair).

Did you spot the cute lil groundhog on every page yet? In the tabs ^ up there ^.

GhD Album Cover

The eagerly awaited Groundhog Day (Original Broadway Cast Recording) is now available to download from:

Amazon, for example, US Amazon and UK Amazon.
Google Play
Try your preferred digital music store.

The CD was released on the 12th May and is available to order from Broadway Records and Amazon (internationally).

UPDATE: (12th May 2017) Apparently, some in the UK are experiencing problems with their CD orders from Amazon UK. There’s limited information at the moment but we’re told:

The messages from Amazon UK are not accurate – they aren’t out of stock and shipping estimates are not correct. They are currently working out some bugs in their system and apologise for any confusion.

Hopefully this will be resolved very soon. We will update this blog if any further clarification is provided.
