Bill Murray visited Broadway's Groundhog Day on August 8 at the August Wilson Theatre. Murray, the star of the 1993 film on which the musical is based took time after the performance to greet the company and take a few photos. This is one place we can honestly say we aren't too surprised to see Murray show up.
