Episode Details

Original tape date: April 7, 2017.

First aired: April 29, 2017.

Director Matthew Warchus, lead actor Andy Karl, and librettist Danny Rubin, 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.
