Meet Phil Connors (Andy Karl), a disgruntled big-city weatherman mysteriously stuck in small-town America reliving the same day over and over and over again—with no consequences, no regrets, no tomorrows, and no hangovers. But once he starts getting to know associate TV producer Rita Hanson (Barrett Doss), he discovers it’s a day of second, third and fourth chances.

Based on the iconic film, Groundhog Day is re-imagined by the award-winning creators of the international hit Matilda The Musical—including director Matthew Warchus and songwriter Tim Minchin—with a book by original screenwriter Danny Rubin. Starring Olivier Award winner and three-time Tony Award nominee Andy Karl, Groundhog Day is the new musical comedy about living life to the fullest, one day at a time.

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.

Groundhog Day features Andy Karl, who stars as Phil Connors following his Olivier Award-winning performance in the show’s Olivier Award-winning production at The Old Vic in London last summer, and newcomer Barrett Doss (You Can’t Take It With You, Burning at The New Group) as Rita Hanson.

The Groundhog Day ensemble cast features Rebecca Faulkenberry (Spider-Man Turn Off The Dark, Rock of Ages), John Sanders (Matilda, Peter and the Starcatcher), Andrew Call (Found, American Idiot), Raymond J. Lee (Honeymoon in Vegas, Anything Goes), Heather Ayers (Young Frankenstein, On a Clear Day You Can See Forever), Kevin Bernard (Billy Elliot, Curtains), Gerard Canonico (Spring Awakening, American Idiot), Rheaume Crenshaw (Amazing Grace, Alternating Currents), Michael Fatica (She Loves Me, Newsies), Katy Geraghty (Shrek, A Christmas Carol regionally), Camden Gonzales (Matilda The Musical Toronto / National Tour), Jordan Grubb (Mary Poppins National Tour), Taylor Iman Jones (American Idiot National Tour), Tari Kelly (Something Rotten!, Anything Goes), Josh Lamon (Finding Neverland, Hair), Joseph Medeiros (Matilda, Doctor Zhivago, Wicked), Sean Montgomery (Matilda The Musical, White Christmas National Tour), William Parry (Sunday in the Park with George, Passion), Jenna Rubaii (National Tours of American Idiot and Saturday Night Fever), Vishal Vaidya (1776 at Encores!, The Secret Garden at Shakespeare Theatre Company), Travis Waldschmidt (Matilda The Musical, Wicked), and Natalie Wisdom (Billy Elliot, Matilda The Musical National Tour).
