The Broadway production of Escape to Margaritaville, featuring the songs of Jimmy Buffett, officially opened at the Marquis Theatre March 15. The open-ended New York engagement follows a world premiere at La Jolla Playhouse and a subsequent tour that played Houston, New Orleans, and Chicago.
Featuring a book by Greg Garcia and Mike O’Malley, Escape to Margaritaville uses Buffett’s familiar catalog and new songs to tell the story of a relaxed island paradise and its inhabitants—including a carefree bartender and a visiting, career-minded scientist who challenges his worldview.
