Andy Karl will reprise his much lauded London performance as Phil Connors, a cynical Pittsburgh TV weatherman sent to cover the annual Groundhog Day event in the small town of Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania. Caught in a time loop, he’s forced to relive the same day again and again…and again.

Further Broadway casting is yet to be announced.

The show reunites composer and lyricist Tim, with director Matthew Warchus, choreographer Peter Darling and designer Rob Howell, four of the Matilda The Musical creative team. They have joined forces with writer Danny Rubin to collaborate on this new musical based on his 1993 hit film.

Groundhog Day is being produced on Broadway by Matthew Warchus and André Ptaszynski for Whistle Pig, and Lia Vollack for Columbia Live Stage.

Additional information can be found at groundhogdaymusical.com.

Groundhog Day enjoyed a hugely successful and critically acclaimed 10 week season at the Old Vic Theatre, London, in the summer of 2016.

Congratulations on “Ground Hogs Day”coming to Broadway! I am anxious to see it.

“Matilda” has been part of mine and my four grandchildren’s lives since it opened. We listen to the score regularly. I took my oldest, Lucia 6, to see it in September, 2016 and she was mesmerized! She talks about it as her favorite life event! Wow!

Thank you for sharing your work with the world.
