A 12-week run of Groundhog Day will play at The Old Vic from 20 May–12 August 2023
Andy Karl will reprise his Olivier Award-winning role as the cynical TV weatherman Phil Connors with further casting to be announced.
‘Tomorrow spring will come and then
There will be blue skies my friend
Bright eyes and laughter
Tomorrow there will be sun’
Phil Connors is a pretty awful guy.
But when the cynical Pittsburgh TV weatherman is sent to cover the eccentric annual Groundhog Day event in the small town of Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania, he finds himself caught in a time loop that sends him on a hilarious path to enlightenment and redemption.
A comic parable of love, hope and transformation from the creatives behind Matilda The Musical and The Old Vic’s A Christmas Carol, this Olivier Award-winning (Best New Musical, Best Actor) musical sensation based on the 1993 hit film returns to The Old Vic this summer.
