Translating a movie as beloved as *Groundhog Day* to the stage is no easy feat, but the cast here is in capable hands: The show’s music and lyrics are by Tim Minchin (who won a Tony Award for *Matilda The Musical*) and the book is by Danny Rubin (who cowrote the movie’s screenplay with the late Harold Ramis). Together, Minchin and Rubin explore the movie’s premise—a weatherman relives the same day, over and over again—with inspired new depth, giving side characters like Ned Ryerson center stage (the stirring ballad “Night Will Come”), while broadening the emotional range of leads Phil Connors (the Queen-like ballad “Hope”) and his love interest, Rita (the funny, touching “One Day”).
My Favorite New Musical In Years
If you loved Matilda, you're going to LOOOOVVVEEE Groundhog Day. It's Minchin on a WHOLE new level.
I was so pleasantly surprised by the Broadway adaption of the movie! It was absolutely wonderful, moving, with terrific music and an awesome cast.
The perfect fun musical!
My favorite of the year! Easily. So great to hear it all again...and again...and again...
