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.

Buffett Interviewed Ahead of Australia Tour Stop

Jimmy Buffett has been making his way southwest through the Pacific Islands, making stops in Hawaii, Fiji, and Norfolk Island (see pics on his Instagram feed) enroute to Australia where he’ll perform at the Byron Bay Bluesfest on Friday.

News Corp Australia Network interviewed Buffett: “Jimmy Buffett hopes to not fall off stage and stay away from sharks on his return gig to Australia”

FAMED American singer Jimmy Buffett hopes to share a margarita with the Sydney trauma doctor who “probably saved my life” when he returns to Australia to perform at Bluesfest.

The Margaritaville star walked off the stage towards the end of his Hordern Pavilion concert on Australia Day in 2011 — at the tailend of his first Australian tour in more than two decades — and sustained a head injury.

St Vincent’s Hospital head of emergency Professor Gordian Fulde was enjoying the concert from the front row and leapt over the barricades to treat the performer.

Buffett hopes the doctor will join the rest of his legion of Parrothead fans at his one-off concert at the Byron Bay festival on Friday.

“Hopefully I am going to get him up to Byron. That fall off the stage is a memory burned into whatever part of my brain I fell on,” Buffett said ahead of his Australian visit.

“I remember coming to with Gordian over me and telling me I had fallen but to stay with him and keep looking him in the eye.

“He was in the front row … who else gets the head of trauma surgery on Australia Day sitting in their front row?
“I am sure they probably saved my life.”

Jimmy Buffett and the Coral Reefer Band will head to Australia on April 14th to perform at the Byron Bay Bluesfest.

Bluesfest is thrilled to be starting the New Year on a high by announcing the King of Margaritaville himself, Jimmy Buffett and the Coral Reefers will be performing exclusively in Australia at Bluesfest in 2017. Could there be a location more perfect for an artist famous for hits such as ‘Cheeseburger in Paradise’, ‘Changes in Latitudes, Changes in Attitudes’ and of course the classic Margaritaville. Bluesfest can’t wait for his fans to enjoy these hits plus many more just outside of idyllic Byron Bay.

Other acts slated to play Bluesfest include Santana, Patti Smith, the Doobie Brothers, The Lumineers, St Paul & the Broken Bones, and Mary J. Blige.
