Escape to Margaritaville delivers pre-Broadway engagement to Houston stage
ESCAPE TO MARGARITAVILLE TO FEATURE BOTH ORIGINAL AND JIMMY BUFFET CLASSICS THROUGH NOVEMBER 5, 2017
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.
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.
