‘Groundhog Day: The Musical’ MATTHEW WARCHUS, ANDY KARL, DANNY RUBIN 

On April 25, 2017 by Theater Talk Web



Director Matthew Warchus, lead actor Andy Karl, and librettist Danny Rubin(pictured above, left to right), discuss Groundhog Day, their new Broadway musical adapted from the classic 1993 film of the same name that Rubin conceived of solo (wanting to write a screenplay about immortality), and eventually co-wrote with the film’s director, the late Harold Ramis. Karl, who has taken on the challenge of reinventing the role of “Phil, the weatherman,” so closely identified with actor Bill Murray, details the challenges, both mental and physical, entailed in making the role totally his own.
