Broadway Rewind: GROUNDHOG DAY Gets Ready for Broadway with Andy Karl & More!

Today we rewind to 2017...

As Broadway remains dark, BroadwayWorld wants to make sure that you still get your theatre fix each and every day until it's back. In our daily series Broadway Rewind, we're uncovering footage from the depths of our archives so that you can relive magical moments of Broadway past!

Today we rewind to 2017, when Groundhog Day was getting ready for Broadway. Groundhog Day opened on April 17 at the August Wilson Theatre, where it played for 176 performances. Directed by Matthew Warchus and choreographed by Peter Darling, it featured music and lyrics by Tim Minchin and starred Andy Karl, Barrett Doss, and more.

Groundhog Day is the story of Phil Connors, a cynical Pittsburgh TV weatherman who is sent to cover the annual Groundhog Day event in Punxsutawney, PA, 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 learned through his experiences?

Below, watch highlights from the show!
