Be prepared to hear "I Got You Babe" over and over again. Composer Tim Minchin has teamed up with Groundhog Day screenwriter Danny Rubin to adapt the 1993 comedy for the stage. Though the plot will involve a weatherman living the same day over and over again, don't expect it to skew very closely to its inspiration. Minchin concedes, "it would be impossible to try to translate the style and tone of the movie to stage."

Whatever. As long as there's a groundhog trained to tap-dance, I'll be there. (THR)
