Jimmy Buffett was in Chicago over the weekend for the opening of ‘Escape to Margaritaville’ the musical at the Oriental Theatre and one of the biggest stars in the musical world, Hamilton creator Lin-Manuel Miranda, stopped by and joined Jimmy on stage:

Lin-Manuel Miranda spent Saturday in Chicago, unannounced and mostly in the company of Jimmy Buffett.

Each man has a show currently in Chicago: Miranda’s “Hamilton” is in the midst of a long run in the Loop. Buffett’s “Escape to Margaritaville” is in preview performances at the Oriental Theatre.

Buffett and Miranda appeared together at the Chicago matinee of “Hamilton” Saturday. On Saturday night, sources said, the duo were to appear together at the curtain call for “Margaritaville.”

The two are friends. Buffett has seen “Hamilton” several times already, including a night spent watching the show in New York from the soundboard.
