Groundhog Day New York Tickets
Groundhog Day New York TicketsBased on the hit 1993 comedic film by Harold Ramis, Danny Rubin and Bill Murray, Groundhog Day tells the story of snobbish, sneering weather forecaster Phil Connors, who’s trapped in a time loop from which he cannot escape. He begins to grow desperate as he repeats the same events every day. Compared to the film, the musical features an original score and a reworked script. Both old and new audiences in New York can appreciate the story.
What a Difference a Day MakesBack in 2003, legendary lyricist and producer Stephen Sondheim, producer of West Side Story, Gypsy and others, briefly expressed interest in adapting Groundhog Day for the stage. However, nothing concrete ever came of the project. About a decade later, a new production of Groundhog Day was announced to the public. It brought together the creative team from the Tony-winning Matilda The Musical, including director Matthew Warchus, composer and lyricist Tim Minchin, choreographer Peter Darling and designer Rob Howell. The creative team collaborated with Danny Rubin, the scriptwriter on the original film, for which he won a BAFTA Film Award. Groundhog Day originally premiered at The Old Vic in London from August 2016. This production won Best New Musical and Best Actor in a Musical from the Laurence Olivier Awards (out of eight total nominations). The musical was successful enough to warrant a Broadway production, which premiered at the August Wilson Theatre on April 17, 2017, with a cast of Andy Karl, Barrett Doss, Rebecca Faulkenberry and John Sanders. After a successful run of 176 performances, the show closed on Sept. 17 of the same year. The Broadway production received seven nominations from the 2017 Tony Awards, including Best Musical, Best Original Score, Best Choreography, Best Book and more. Andy Karl won a Tony Award, an Outer Critics Circle Award, a Drama Desk Award and another nomination from the Drama League Award for his role as Phil Connors.

The characters of Phil Connors and Rita Hanson have been reworked and expanded, for instance, and some songs are devoted to entire characters or storylines that received only scant development in the original. The musical is more forthrightly emotion and a little less ironic than the film, but it does take darkly comedic turns as well.
