Is the World Ready for “Groundhog Day: The Musical”??

Songwriter Tim Minchin and director Matthew Warchus think so!

Groundhog-Day

The duo most recently brought the beloved children’s book Matilda to the musical theater stage — and to much acclaim. They are currently working with screenwriter Danny Rubin to make the 1993 Bill Murray comedy film a musical, too.

Apparently, back in 2009, Broadway.com reported that musical theater maestros Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine were being floated around as potential collaborators with Rubin, but that has since fallen through.

But, like, seriously…wouldn’t you just need to write a few songs and then just sing them over and over?

What do you think: Would *you* go see a musical version of Groundhog Day?

  1. If Tim Minchin is behind it … a must see! If you don’t know his work yet check out stuff like “Storm” out on youtube..

    • Oh Wow… A Tim Minchin Groundhog Day. That’d be amazing. Best get the soundtrack and learn the songs before going though, cause his writing is rather… dense. Matilda was brilliant on the West End.
