“Groundhog Day follows TV weather man Phil [played by Bill Murray on screen], who reluctantly goes to cover the story of Punxsutawney Phil for the third year in a row. Making no effort to hide his frustration, he covers the story and moves on, expecting his job to be finished.

“However, he awakes the “following” day and discovers that it’s Groundhog Day again, and the fun happens again and again and again. He soon realizes he must take advantage of it in order to secure the love of a coworker.”

The Bermudian singer and actress made her first Broadway appearance in 2011 in 1980′s-era musical Rock Of Ages, and went on to appear in the Broadway hit Spider-Man: Turn off the Dark.
