Jimmy Buffett took to the streets of New York City on December 8 to help open the box office for his musical Escape to Margaritaville at Broadway’s Marquis Theatre. Buffett was handing out free hamburgers to theatregoers and passersby—a nod to his song “Cheeseburger in Paradise.”

As part of Escape to Margaritaville’s ongoing hurricane relief efforts, $5 from every ticket purchase made at the box office December 8 will be donated to One America Appeal, a non-profit organization founded by all five living former U.S. Presidents to aid hurricane victims in the U.S. and in the Caribbean. To date, the show has raised more than $110,000 for hurricane relief.
Following its pre-Broadway tour, the new musical will begin previews February 16, 2018, prior to an official opening March 15 at the Marquis.
