Bill Murray attended a Broadway adaption of "Groundhog Day" and was moved to tears by the production on Tuesday.

It was the first time that the star of the 1993 hit comedy film had seen the musical which was staged at the August Wilson Theater, The New York Times noted.

Accompanied by his brother, Brian Doyle-Murray, and Danny Rubin, who a co-wrote the screenplay for the film, the evening proved to be sentimental as Bill Murray relived key moments from "Groundhog Day."

The renowned actor said the underlying message behind the story had induced tears.

"The idea that we just have to try again. We just have to try again. It’s such a beautiful, powerful idea," he said, according to the Times.

Documenting the entire evening, The New York Times reported that Bill Murray was seen mingling throughout the evening, posing for photos, chatting with fans and even providing encouragement to actors of the production.

"As actors, I can’t respect enough how disciplined you are and how serving you are of the process," he said. "There’s nothing worse than seeing someone that’s out for themselves. And you are all in it for each other."

Murray also had a few words of advice for his fellow actors.

"When you ever feel you don’t know what to do, sing to the person next to you. And that person will sing to the person next to that person, and then you will have this force that’s even stronger."

Murray enjoyed the production so much that he returned or a second viewing the following day, spotted alone Wednesday, The Guardian reported.
