Groundhog Day delays Broadway transfer

Earlier this week Groundhog Day celebrated its official opening at the Old Vic.

It had previously been announced that the musical would open on Broadway on 9th March 2017 (previews from 23rd January). However, following reports in the New York Times that producer Scott Rudin has departed the project, the musical's Broadway run has been pushed back. New dates and a theatre are yet to be announced. 

Tim Minchin's musical runs in London to 17th September 2016. With book by Danny Rubin and choreography by Peter Darling, Groundhog Day is directed by Matthew Warchus who previously collaborated with Minchin on Matilda.

The show stars Broadway actor Andy Karl as Phil Connors, Carlyss Peer as Rita and Eugene McCoy as Larry. Joining them are Leo Andrew, David Birch, Ste Clough, Roger Dipper, Georgina Hagen, Kieran Jae, Julie Jupp, Andrew Langtree, Vicki Lee Taylor, Emma Lindars, Antonio Magro, Carolyn Maitland, Kirsty Malpass, Lisa Mathieson, Jenny O’Leary, Leanne Pinder, Mark Pollard, Damien Poole, Jack Shalloo, Andrew Spillett and Spencer Stafford.

  1. I would have thought the pound/dollar exchange rate might be having somewhat of an influence. Having now gained almost entirely excellent reviews, perhaps a West End transfer will be the next stage?
