Bill Murray is reliving Groundhog Day, once again.
On Tuesday, for the first time, the actor was on-hand to see the stage adaptation of his beloved 1993 comedy in which he starred as weatherman Phil Connors, who was forced to continuously repeat the same day over and over.
The news and running diary of Murray taking in the Broadway show was shared by New York Times writer Sopan Deb. Early on in the entertaining Twitter thread, Deb posted a picture of Murray outside the August Wilson Theatre with fellow Groundhog Day alum Brian Doyle-Murray and Danny Rubin, who co-wrote the film and penned the stage adaptation, which made its Broadway premiere in April after a successful run in London.
In his A- review, EW’s Chris Nashawaty wrote, “The new musical manages to hold onto everything that made the film such a classic and adds songs bound to become nearly as memorable.”
