Broadway punters were in for a shock last night when legendary actor Bill Murray appeared at a performance of Groundhog Day.

Murray, who starred as lead Phil Connors in the original film back when it was released in 1993, later visited the cast and crew backstage to pose for photos. The musical debuted at the Old Vic last year.
