Escape to Margaritaville
Playing at: Oriental Theatre
Dates: November 9, 2017 - December 2, 2017
Plan your escape to the new musical about the choices we make—and the people we become—once we’ve had a change in latitude.

ESCAPE TO MARGARITAVILLE is the musical comedy getaway featuring both original songs and your most-loved JIMMY BUFFETT classics, including “Come Monday,” “Volcano,” “Cheeseburger in Paradise,” and many more. With a book by Emmy® Award winner GREG GARCIA (“My Name is Earl,” “Raising Hope”) and Emmy® Award nominee MIKE O’MALLEY (“Survivor’s Remorse,” “Shameless”), this rousing and refreshing new production is choreographed by Tony Award® nominee KELLY DEVINE (Come From Away, Rock of Ages) and directed by the Tony Award® winner CHRISTOPHER ASHLEY (Come From Away, Memphis).

Imagine a place where the sun is hot, the water’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. Take a break from your troubles, make some new friends at the bar, and kick back to the soothing sounds of the steel drum. It doesn’t get much better than this. All you need now is a ticket.

More than a musical. It’s a way of life.

All patrons, regardless of age, must have a ticket. As a courtesy to our patrons, it is the policy of ESCAPE TO MARGARITAVILLE not to admit children under the age of 5.
