What Is Groundhog Day Like? Just like the film from which it is based, Groundhog Day on Broadway is a musical that tells a similar story of a weatherman named Phil Connors who wakes up one day to realize that it is the same day as yesterday – that is, he is caught in an endless loop wherein he keeps living the same day over and over again. Frustrations mount as does the comedy, as Connors tries to get out of the vicious cycle. In the meantime, he finds it necessary to relent his deeply cynical attitude as he gets acquainted with the other residents in the small Pennsylvania town in the midst of a snow storm. This musical adaptation is a thoroughly well designed piece of theatre, due to the pedigree of the creative team working on the show, as well as the fundamentally engaging story that is beloved by movie fans and hopeless romantics everywhere.
Is Groundhog Day Good for Kids? Yes, the show is appropriate for children over the age of 8. Children under the age of 4 are not permitted in the theatre, or indeed into any Broadway theatre.
