What the popular press said...
"Repetition is an art of infinite variety as it’s practiced by Andy Karl in “Groundhog Day,” the dizzyingly witty new musical from the creators of “Matilda.”... “Groundhog Day” reimagines a much-loved film about instant karma with such fertile and feverish theatrical imagination that you expect to see it implode before your eyes."
Ben Brantley for New York Times
"If a groundhog sees its shadow, there’ll be six more weeks of winter. If you see “Groundhog Day,” there’ll be 2 hours and 45 minutes of kinetic and sometimes witty but ultimately wearying antics. Fortunately, there’s a silver lining: musical-comedy dreamboat Andy Karl, who puts his own irresistible stamp on the arrogant TV weatherman played in the 1993 film by Bill Murray."
Joe Dziemianowicz for New York Daily News
"While there are likeable, inspired elements in this musical adaptation of the great Bill Murray movie, time crawls as you wait for boorish weatherman Phil Connors to surrender to human kindness and true romance."
David Cote for Time Out New York
"Unlike far too many musicals regurgitated from hit movies, Groundhog Day is a delirious reinvention with its own defiantly unique personality, a relentless forward-backward spin that leaves you smiling, exhilarated and giddy, much like the Tilt-a-Whirl ride that briefly occupies the stage in the show's second act."
David Rooney for Hollywood Reporter
"As musical theater performers go, you couldn’t ask for a more personable fellow than Andy Karl. His high-energy athleticism kept “Rocky” on its toes. And his comic chops earned him plenty of notice in “On the Twentieth Century.” Now, in “Groundhog Day,” he proves he can carry an entire show on his back."
