That's right theatre fans. Groundhog Day is coming to the Great White Way. The show, which opened to rave reviews in London this past Summer, will begin previews at the August Wilson Theatre in March 2017, with opening night scheduled for April 17, 2017. Now Groundhog Day is one of my favorite movies of all time.
So you can imagine how excited I was when they announced that they were turning it into a musical. Not only that, but it is being written and directed by the same team from Matilda. Now do you see why I am so excited? Now for those of you that are not familiar with the movie, here is a brief synopsis to get you up to speed. Enjoy!
Set in the secluded little town of Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania, Groundhog
Day tells the story of skeptic and Pittsburgh T.V. weatherman Phil
Connors (Tony nominee Andy Karl), who is sent to cover the annual
Groundhog Day. Suddenly, he finds himself caught in a never ending time
loop, where he is forced to repeat the same day again and again, causing
him to question his life choices and his future.
Sounds like a Tony Award contender to me. Here's hoping the New York critic's enjoy the show as much as their counterparts from across the pond. Tickets for the show are scheduled to go on sale on October 26. Oh and it gets better. We will be selling tickets to the show. Just give us a call and one of our friendly ticket experts will take care of the rest. Get your tickets to see Groundhog Day at the August Wilson Theatre on Broadway. Until next time theatre fans.
