A major hit in both London and on Broadway!
The original 1993 film Groundhog starred Bill Murray and was a smash hit at the time, cementing the film's status in pop culture history. The musical adaptation was something Rubin had been considering for a long time but did not truly start to come to fruition until he crossed paths with Minchin and they began to collaborate on musical creations that Rubin felt were worthy of the source material. Minchin is a world-famous Australian comedian known for his comedic musical numbers that are both hilarious and thoughtful at the same time. The show premiered in The Old Vic, London in 2016 and opening night included many of the old cast members. The performance went on to win 8 Laurence awards and 2 Olivier awards, both for Best New Musical and Best Actor in a Musical. The show then went on to a critically praised Broadway opening, where lead actor Andy Karl distinguished himself by continuing to perform despite a serious leg injury.
