YES!!! So much YES!!!

Back in April, we got our first look at Glee actor Darren Criss in character as Hedwig in the current Broadway production of Hedwig and the Angry Inch.

The ‘Groundhog Day’ Movie Is Being Adapted Into A Broadway Musical

Coming in 2017

Proof that there are no original ideas left in the world comes to us today with the news that the 1993 Bill Murray film Groundhog Day is being adapted into a Broadway musical set for release in 2017. Groundhog Day, as you may be well aware, tells the tale of TV weatherman Phil Connors (Murray) who is stuck in a hilarious time loop that forces him to repeat the same day over and over and over again as he reports from Punxsutawney, PA on Groundhog Day. The musical version is being written by the guy who conceived the story for the movie and co-wrote the screenplay with Bill Murray. I mean, yes, it’s good that the musical is in the hands of the movie creator but don’t you think a clever guy like this might be able to come up with a totally original idea for a new musical show? HMMM. Click below to learn more about this forthcoming Groundhog Day musical and get a preview of one of the songs from the show. More »
