The main cast for the Escape to Margaritaville musical has been announced.

Paul Alexander Nolan will sink his teeth into a starring role (and perhaps a cheeseburger in paradise?) in the Broadway-aimed Jimmy Buffett musical Escape to Margaritaville. The Bright Star standout will headline the production’s world premiere at La Jolla Playhouse. He is set to play Tully, a part-time bartender and singer. Broadway alums Alison Luff and Lisa Howard will take on the roles of Rachel and Tammy, respectively. Performances of the Christopher Ashley-helmed musical are scheduled to begin on May 9. As previously announced, a Great White Way opening is slated for spring 2018.

Nolan’s Broadway credits include Chicago, Doctor Zhivago, Jesus Christ Superstar and Once. Luff was last seen on the Great White Way in Les Misérables; she also appeared in Matilda, Scandalous and Ghost. Howard last appeared on Broadway in It Shoulda Been You. Her additional Great White Way credits include Priscilla Queen of the Desert, 9 to 5, South Pacific and The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee.

The La Jolla engagement is scheduled to run through June 25. The production will then go to New Orleans’ Saenger Theatre from October 20 through 28. Performances at Houston’s Hobby Center will run from October 31 through November 5. The Chicago stint is set for November 9 through December 3. Further casting will be announced at a later date.

Margaritaville Musical to be Produced

posted December 17th, 2015 at 11:53 am

It was a year ago that we told you about a musical in the works based on Jimmy Buffett’s life and music, and it was announced today that the project will indeed happen, and there are some big names on Broadway that are involved with the development. 

A team of producers including Hollywood regular Frank Marshall is developing a new musical centered around the tunes of Jimmy Buffett, with a story by Greg Garcia, the creator of TV shows including “My Name Is Earl,” and Mike O’Malley (pictured with Garcia), whose face is familiar from acting gigs in “Glee” and “Yes, Dear,” another series created by Garcia.

Christopher Ashley, the director of Broadway Tony winner “Memphis” and the artistic director of the La Jolla Playhouse in San Diego, will direct. No plot details have yet been set, but the story will be inspired by the island-escape party vibe beloved by Parrotheads, as Buffet’s legion of fans call themselves. A title hasn’t been announced yet either, although it would seem a shocker if the show isn’t called “Margaritaville,” the name of one of Buffett’s best-known songs.

Marshall has teamed with Mindy Rich, Anita Waxman and Beth Williams, the lead producer of upcoming Broadway musical “Tuck Everlasting,” for the new musical. Buffett’s work seems a logical choice for a large-scale Broadway outing, since the the singer-songwriter comes to the table with fervent, older-skewing fans who fall right into the target demo for Broadway ticketbuyers.

The show’s proposed timeline has the musical bowing in 2017. No exact date or venue has been set, although the La Jolla Playhouse, the theater run by Ashley, looks like a logical choice for a pre-Broadway tryout.

Buffett to Hold Get-Out-The-Vote Rally for Florida Candidate

Jimmy Buffett plans to hold a get-out-the-vote rally for Democratic candidate for Congress Gwen Graham on Wednesday, October 29th. Graham is the daughter of former Florida governor Bob Graham, whom Buffett started the Save the Manatees organization with in 1981.

Buffett is set to perform “a short acoustic set with his friend Mac McAnally” and tout Graham’s candidacy, according to a press release. More details are forthcoming about the time, location and ticket availability.

From the free media exposure to voter mobilization to fundraising, Buffett’s appearance for Graham is the type of star-power help most candidates dream about. Polling indicates the race between her and Southerland is tight in Congressional District 2, which stretches from the Tallahassee area to Panama City.

Nearly every election you can find Buffett hosting or playing at a fundraiser for Florida democratic candidates. Browse previous stories on Buffett and politics.
