Andy Karl will lead Broadway's 'Groundhog Day' openingPor Galtero Lara Abr 21, 2017
With his Critic's Pick seal of approval, Ben Brantley (New York Times) deems the show "dizzyingly witty" and applauds its "fertile and feverish theatrical imagination", with particular praise for the "outrageously inventive", "newborn, bona fide musical star" Karl, who "is giving not one but numerous best performances of the season". Directed by Tony Award victor Matthew Warchus ("God of Carnage") and featuring music and lyrics by Tony nominee Tim Minchin ("Matilda The Musical"), the show stars Andy Karl in the role of sardonic weatherman Phil Connors, originated on screen by Bill Murray, who nightmarishly relives the same day in the twee town of Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania. An understudy filled in for him at the Friday-night performance.
"I will be taking a few shows off on doctors orders", Karl, 43, wrote on Instagram. Karl, who leads the cast as Phil Connors, was physically unable to perform over the weekend but returned for the opening night performance, on Monday, April 17, as well as last night's show.
Karl hurt himself during a preview performance Friday, forcing the cancellation of Saturday's matinee.
Based on the 1993 film, Groundhog Day (2017 Olivier Award-winning Best Musical) features a score by Matilda The Musical composer Tim Minchin and is directed by Matlida's Matthew Warchus, with original screenwriter Danny Rubin providing the book.
The decision for Karl's break this week was confirmed to producers this morning, they said in a statement.
"Groundhog Day" tells the story of a cranky TV weatherman (Karl) who gets stuck in a time warp while covering the Groundhog Day ceremonies in Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania - reliving the same day over and over again until he gets it right.
