“Groundhog Day” Musical Started

groundhog_190x190Sure, stage adaptations of unlikely source material are announced practically every day, and almost none of them will ever happen, never in a million years — but it’s really not often we hear about one we’d actually like to see! Harold Ramis tells MTV today that Danny Rubin, with whom he wrote the 1993 movie starring Bill Murray (pictured), is hard at work on the book for a “Groundhog Day” musical. Rubin was purportedly inspired by an interview with Stephen Sondheim in which the legendary composer said it was the film he’d most like to see become a show. And we agree with Sondheim — couldn’t this actually be great? If Sondheim got on board the project, all he’d have to do is write one song and recycle endless variations of it throughout the evening.
