Jimmy Buffett was on hand Friday at the Marquis Theater box office as tickets for his musical ‘Escape to Margaritaville’ went on sale.

Island rocker Jimmy Buffett caused a sensation in Times Square on Friday when he appeared outside the Marquis Theatre to help open the box office for his Broadway musical, “Escape to Margaritaville.”

Buffett passed out more than 500 cheeseburgers to fans — a nod to his hit “Cheeseburger in Paradise” — and “posed for nearly as many selfies” a spy said.

Although the temperature was far from tropical, theater owner James L. Nederlander was also out front scarfing a burger, promising that he and Buffett would return to do a “cheeseburger cookout” when the show opens in the spring.

The show begins previews in February.
