Groundhog Day is the story of Phil Connors, a cynical Pittsburgh TV weatherman who is sent to cover the annual Groundhog Day event in Punxsutawney, PA, when he finds himself caught in a time loop, forced to repeat the same day again and again…and again. As each day plays out exactly the same as before Phil becomes increasingly despondent, but is there a lesson to be learned through his experiences, will he ever unlock the secret and break the cycle?
The 1993 Columbia Pictures film, with a screenplay by Danny Rubin and Harold Ramis, based on a story by Rubin, and directed by Ramis, starred Bill Murray. Now widely regarded as a contemporary classic, Groundhog Day was cited by the Writers Guild of America as one of the 101 Greatest Screenplays ever written and in 2000 was voted by readers of Total Film as one of the ten best comedies of all time.

This show has universal appeal! It's set is impressive, and the staging is incredibly clever and imaginative. Andy Karl's performance is remarkable!

I laughed until my stomach hurt! I love the Bill Murray movie, and I didn't know what to expect, but this show was so good! I would recommend it for high school or college groups.
An incredibly charming new musical. I loved Andy Karl's performance (he's such a dreamboat!) and the fact that the show combines different kinds of humor - seamlessly blending dark humor and slapstick.
