Groundhog Day The Musical London West End tickets 

Underneath the fantasy and the drama of the acclaimed, Groundhog Day story, the magical little tale of righting our wrongs has kept the world coming back for more since the 1990s. What originally began in 1993 as a smash-hit film, and what is considered one of the best comedies ever made, has carried over its blend of ingenious wit and philosophical messages to the stage, and thus, the Olivier-award-winning musical Groundhog Day most recently returned for a smash-hit run at Old Vic. After bidding the West End goodbye, Groundhog Day has no current plans to return, but follow us for more upates!

About Groundhog Day The Musical 

‘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 bad guy, some would even call him narcissistic. Stuck in his own bitterness and self-interest, the cynical Pittsburgh TV weatherman is sent to cover a peculiar Groundhog Day event in the small town of Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania and soon the unimpressed and never-satisfied Phil finds himself caught in a nightmarish loop of time that forces him onto a road of redemption and enlightenment.

Groundhog Day the film 

Led by the fantastic Bill Murray, Groundhog Day the film debuted to the world and was a major box-office hit, grossing $105 million against a budget of $14.6 - 30 million. In retrospective reviews, it has been considered to be one of the greatest and most defining films of the 1990s and one of the greatest films ever made. Its influence on popular culture has led the world into in-depth discussions, with its redemption arc being compared to that of Ebenezer Scrooge. It is credited for not only entertaining audiences, but also paving the way for philosophical and religious analysis, whilst also bringing the fantasy-comedy genre to the mainstream. It is included on the list of 1001 Movies You Must See Before You Die, and several publications have ranked it as one of the greatest comedies ever made, including The Telegraph, Rotten Tomatoes (where it currently holds a rating of 97%), Rolling Stone and many more.
