The Groundhog Day musical is a joyful experience about one huge jerk. As Bill Murray’s take on the same character does in the Harold Ramis film classic, Phil eventually learns his lessons, but this stage adaptation from director Matthew Warchus, playwright Danny Rubin, and composer Tim Minchin turn his cantankerousness up a couple of notches before he does. The Phil in the Groundhog Day Musical isn’t the same Phil from the movie. The show has the same character, attitude, and spirit, but Rubin and Minchin have made that familiar story and day feel fresh and new. But it also doesn’t forget the heart and laughs from the Harold Ramis classic, either.
