It’s Groundhog Day at the Old Vic as the smash-hit Olivier Award winning musical returns to London in 2021.
Based on the classic 90s film starring Bill Murray as a cynical weatherman forced to endlessly relive the same day over and over again, this hilarious musical comedy is the perfect show for a great night out.
Groundhog Day The Musical is brought to the stage by an Award winning creative team including composer and lyricist Tim Minchin, writer Danny Rubin, choreographer Peter Darling and Director Matthew Warchus.
Groundhog Day The Musical will play a limited season at the Old Vic Theatre in 2021.
What’s the Story?
It’s February 2nd in the small town of Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania, and a storm is coming. Phil Connors, a big-city weatherman, couldn’t be more frustrated to be reporting on the small-town Groundhog Day Ceremony — until he finds himself reliving the same day over and over again.
Stuck in an endless loop of arrogance and cynicism amongst the cheery townsfolk, Phil must learn to take advantage of his second, third, and fourth chances and break the cycle.
