Escape to Margaritaville, the new musical featuring the hit songs of singer-songwriter Jimmy Buffett, officially opens on Broadway March 15 at the Marquis Theatre. Previews begin February 16.
With a book by Emmy Award winner Greg Garcia (My Name Is Earl, Raising Hope) and Emmy Award nominee Mike O’Malley, the musical tells the story of a part-time bartender, part-time singer and full-time charmer named Tully who thinks he’s got life all figured out until a beautiful career-minded tourist steals his heart and makes him question everything.
The musical reunites Come From Away's Tony-winning director Christopher Ashley and Tony-nominated choreographer Kelly Devine. The two will be featured in a panel discussion after a performance from the cast during an exclusive pop-up preview event at Renaissance New York Times Square Hotel on January 22.
