Bill Murray Brought To Tears After Seeing Broadway's 'Groundhog Day' For First Time!

Bill Murray has relived Groundhog Day… again!

The 66-year-old comedian, who starred in the original hit 1993 movie, posed backstage with Andy Karl, Barrett Doss, screenplay writer Danny Rubin and his brother Brian Doyle Murray following a performance of Groundhog Day on Broadway held at The August Wilson Theatre on Tuesday (August 8) in New York City.

It was Bill‘s first time seeing the musical, which was nominated for seven 2017 Tony Awards and took home London’s Olivier Award for Best Musical.

According to reports from The New York Times, Bill was “sobbing” by the end of the performance. “As actors, I can’t respect enough how disciplined you are and how serving you are of the process,” Bill told the cast backstage. “There’s nothing worse than seeing someone that’s out for themselves. And you are all in it for each other.”

“The idea that we just have to try again. We just have to try again. It’s such a beautiful, powerful idea,” Bill said of the show’s message.
