San Diego Union Tribune Reviews ‘Escape to Margaritaville’ and Interviews Buffett

‘Escape to Margaritaville’ the musical is playing now at the La Jolla Playhouse in Southern California and the San Diego Union Tribune has a very detailed review of the production, plus an interview with Jimmy Buffett: “‘Escape to Margaritaville’ goes down easy at La Jolla Playhouse”

So it’s good to be able to report that the Margaritaville brought to life in La Jolla Playhouse’s world-premiere Buffett musical is a place you’ll likely be pickled — er, tickled to spend some time.

The show, born and bred (or poured and blended) at the Playhouse and now setting its sights on Broadway, strings together nearly two dozen Buffett favorites plus a couple of new songs, and sets them to a love story that blooms in a touristy tropical backwater.

You will not be surprised to learn there’s a good-time, party vibe to it all. No one expected this show to be “Les Miz” in flip-flops (much less Chekhov by the beach), but it’s still worth noting how “Escape to Margaritaville” delivers just about every bit of what the phrase “Jimmy Buffett musical” promises, from the splashy colors to the steel-drum beats to the palm-fronded beach bar slinging fruity cocktails.

Jimmy Buffett is developing another 55+ Latitude Margaritaville community, this time in Hilton Head, SC. The first community announced was in Daytona Beach, FL.

Latitude Margaritaville Hilton Head in South Carolina will feature 3,000-plus homes with a wide range of home designs and floor plans starting in the low $200’s.

Those “55 and better” will be able to move into this paradise where the party never stops and ‘growing older, but not up’ is encouraged by the end of next year. Development will begin immediately with a sales center set to open early-2018. Furnished models are projected to be ready by mid-2018.

The community, which will be influenced by the spectacular South Carolina setting and charming classic coastal architecture, will sit on 2,739 acres and include a 72-acre site for a 290,000-square foot Margaritaville-inspired festive retail center. Located on Highway 278, two-and-a-half miles east of I-95 in the city of Hardeeville, South Carolina, this second location is close to the historic cities of Savannah, GA, and Charleston, SC.

New Biography of Jimmy Buffett

A new, detailed biography of Jimmy Buffett is on book shelves now: Jimmy Buffett: A Good Life All The Way

In Jimmy Buffett: A Good Life All the Way, acclaimed music critic Ryan White has crafted the first definitive account of Buffett’s rise from singing songs for beer to his emergence as a tropical icon and CEO behind the Margaritaville industrial complex, a vast network of merchandise, chain restaurants, resorts, and lifestyle products all inspired by his sunny but disillusioned hit “Margaritaville.”

Filled with interviews from friends, musicians, Coral Reefer Band members past and present, and business partners who were there, this book is a top-down joyride with plenty of side trips and meanderings from Mobile and Pascagoula to New Orleans, Key West, down into the islands aboard the Euphoria and the Euphoria II, and into the studios and onto the stages where the foundation of Buffett’s reputation was laid.
