“Groundhog Day” is heading from Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania, to Broadway.
The 1993 comedy starring Bill Murray, Andie MacDowell and a very cute groundhog is getting a musical stage adaptation set to open on March 9, 2017.
And just like Pittsburgh TV weatherman Phil Connors’ day, it will repeat over and over and over again.
The musical is presented by the same creative team that worked on the Broadway production of “Matilda,” which has won four Tony awards since 2013 and made $117 million to date.

“Groundhog Day” will have a book by Danny Rubin, who wrote the screenplay with Harold Ramis, and Tim Minchin will write the music and lyrics with choreography by Peter Darling, reported USAToday.com.
Matthew Warchus will direct, and set and costume design will be executed by Rob Howell.
