Groundhog Day

So good you'll want to see it over and over and over and over…

Join The Old Vic this summer for the world premiere of Groundhog Day – a new musical directed by Old Vic Artistic Director Matthew Warchus. Groundhog Day is the story of Phil Connors (Andy Karl), a cynical Pittsburgh TV weatherman who is sent to cover the annual Groundhog Day event in the isolated small town of Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania, when he finds himself caught in a time loop, forced to repeat the same day again and again…and again. As each day plays out exactly the same as before, Phil becomes increasingly despondent, but is there a lesson to be learnt through his experiences? Will he ever unlock the secret and break the cycle? Director Matthew Warchus, composer and lyricist Tim Minchin, choreographer Peter Darling and designer Rob Howell (four of the creators of the international sensation Matilda The Musical) have joined forces with writer Danny Rubin to collaborate on this new musical based on his 1993 hit film. Andy Karl’s numerous Broadway credits include On the Twentieth Century, Rocky, The Mystery of Edwin Drood, Jersey Boys, Wicked, 9 to 5, Legally Blonde, The Wedding Singer and Saturday Night Fever. Audio-described performance: 30 August 7:30pm. Captioned performance: 5 September 7:30pm. Suitable for ages 13 and over.
