Featuring both original songs and your most-loved Jimmy Buffett classics, the producers of Escape to Margaritaville are bringing the production to Houston as part of a limited pre-Broadway engagement October 31 through November 5.
Imagine a place where the sun is hot, the ocean’s warm, and the drinks are as cold as they are plentiful.
Welcome to Margaritaville, the island paradise where city folk get away from it all and the locals get into the kind of trouble you can almost always sweet talk your way out of.
This new musical is 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.
Escape to Margaritaville will include brand new music, specifically written for the musical by Buffett, along with many of his hits songs that are near-and-dear to fans’ hearts.
The original story is by co-book writers Greg Garcia (“My Name is Earl”) and Mike O’Malley (“Survivor’s Remorse,” “Shameless”).
Two-time Tony Award® nominee Christopher Ashley will direct, and the creative team will also include Tony®-nominated Choreographer Kelly Devine, Scenic Designer Walt Spangler, Tony Award®-winning Costume Designer Paul Tazewell, two-time Tony Award®-winning Lighting Designer Howell Binkley, two-time Tony Award®-winning Sound Designer Brian Ronan, Tony Award-nominee Christopher Jahnke as Music Supervisor and 101 Productions, Ltd. as General Management.
