About Groundhog Day

Andy Karl reprises his Olivier Award-winning performance as weatherman Phil Connors in the zany musical. Groundhog Day tickets are available on London Theatre now.

The Groundhog Day musical is based on the 1993 Groundhog Day film of the same name, and both feature a script by Danny Rubin. The musical follows Phil Connors, a television weatherman who reassures viewers on 1 February that a blizzard will not hit western Pennsylvania. That same evening, he's sent on an assignment and begrudgingly travels to Punxsutawney, a small town 90 minutes outside of Pittsburgh, to cover the “Groundhog Day” festivities.

Every year, an infamous groundhog — Punxsutawney Phil — "predicts" the weather. But in a turn of events, Phil Connors is stuck in his own time loop. In order to prevent being forced to relive 2 February over and over again, Phil must change the way he approaches life, and the world around him. Will Phil stop being a cynic?

In a 2016 Groundhog Day review for London Theatre, our critic said: "Andy Karl pulls off the impressive feat of giving its inevitability a high-stakes tension. He's understandably bewildered by what's happening to him; then he throws caution to the wind and starts to enjoy the playfulness that he can have in knowing what's coming up; and finally, through eventual acceptance, to a beautiful understanding of himself. Andy Karl and the entire show are both spellbinding."

Andy Karl reprises the role of Phil Connors for Groundhog Day in 2023. The Broadway actor first played the role in 2016, and again for the Broadway transfer, picking up an Olivier Award and a Tony nomination for Best Actor in a Musical.

Who wrote the Groundhog Day musical?

Danny Rubin wrote the Groundhog Day musical. Some of the West End’s finest creatives reunite to collaborate on the Groundhog Day musical. Director Matthew Warchus and musician and lyricist Tim Minchin work together for the first time since Matilda — both musicals won Best Musical at the Olivier Awards.

What is the Groundhog Day tradition?

The “groundhog day” tradition hails from North America. Every 2 February, a groundhog is said to come out of its hibernation to one of two results. If the groundhog does not see its shadow, then spring is said to begin. If the animal sees its shadow, the groundhog returns to its hole — superstition says this ushers six more weeks of wintry weather. However, if you’re living a “groundhog day,” this means you’re living repeated days in the same way.

Clever, Entertaining, Funny

See it if you want to spend an evening smiling from ear to ear. Funny, excellently staged and surprisingly heartwarming.

Don’t see it if you don’t like the notion of repetition which is really the gimmick here, but personally it didn’t get stale for me at all.

Dizzying, Great singing, Great acting, Funny, Clever

See it if you want to treat yourself to incredibly inventive stagecraft in a lightweight but fun musical

Don’t see it if you need a memorable score (nothing stuck with me on the train back from the theater) or are prudish

Great staging, Great singing, Great acting, Funny, Entertaining

See it if you want to see something light-hearted. The acting and staging are first rate and Andy Karl doesn't disappoint.

Don’t see it if you don't like to see thing repeated over and over again. That's the point of the show, but it could get irrating after so many repeats.

Great staging, Funny, Entertaining, Enchanting, Delightful

See it if you want a feel good musical, with catchy songs and brilliant staging. It's hilarious, yet also really beautiful and touching at times.

Don’t see it if you don't like repetition - songs are repeated multiple times (with slightly altered lyrics), but this is part of the plot and is done well.
