Escape to Margaritaville includes Buffett’s classic hits, as well as original songs from the singer/songwriter. The story, crafted by scribes Greg Garcia and Mike O’Malley, follows a character named Tully at the titular tropical island resort as he questions his relaxed ways upon meeting (and falling in love with) a career-minded tourist. Come From Aways Tony-nominated director Christopher Ashley and choreographer Kelly Devine lead the creative team.

Jimmy Buffett says he was going to be on Broadway one way or another because of his mother.

“She was the Southern version of Auntie Mame,” Buffett says, “and she made me audition for ‘South Pacific’ in Mobile, [Ala.,] because she was playing Bloody Mary, and I was supposed to be Emile de Becque’s son. But I ran out to play baseball, so it didn’t happen.”

But it’s happening now.
