Bill Murray can never escape from Groundhog Day. Sure, the end of the 1993 movie may have made it seem like he’d escaped from the cycle of repeating the same day every day – but the actor has now experienced the whole thing all over again. At least this time it was voluntary.
Goundhog Day the Musical is now in Broadway after a successful London run, so Murray – who starred as world-weary and arrogant weatherman Phil Connors – decided to see it for the first time.
Luckily he loved it. And even more luckily, New York Times writer Sopan Deb was on hand to tweet out this excellent thread.
First up, Murray arrived at the theatre. It was very exciting.
I am here at the August Wilson Theatre, where Bill Murray is about to watch the Groundhog Day musical for the first time. Dead serious.
