    Join Josh and follow Groundhog Day cast mates Taylor Iman Jones, Joseph Medeiros, Tari Kelly, and Travis Waldschmidt as they discuss the ups, downs, turns, turntables, and all other directions that was the wild ride of this show.

Based on the 1993 film of the same name written by Rubin and Harold Ramis, the musical made its world premiere at The Old Vic in London in summer 2016 and opened at the August Wilson Theatre on Broadway on 17 April 2017. The plot centers around Phil Connors, an arrogant Pittsburgh TV weatherman who, during an assignment covering the annual Groundhog Day event in Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania, finds himself in a time loop, repeating the same day again and again.

So funny AND full of heart

I love this podcast as a human and a performer. It’s really wonderful to hear these folks (that often I look up to) talk candidly about their paths and lives - and usually be laughing so hard the whole time.

This makes me laugh out loud in public

No matter where I am listening to this makes me laugh so hard I have to gasp for breath. Thank you Josh for letting us into your friendships with these Broadway actors. When I’m listening to this doing dishes, I laugh so hard my kids ask if I’m ok. Sometimes I cry laughing.

The reunion episode with the cast of The Prom is brilliant is every way. Thank you for this Podcast!!!
