The Jimmy Buffett musical ‘Escape to Margaritaville,’ currently running at the La Jolla Playhouse in San Diego, will make it’s Broadway debut next March at the Marquis Theater:

Christopher Ashley, whose is currently nominated for a Tony for his staging of sleeper success “Come From Away,” directs the show, which has claimed the Marquis now that Gloria Estefan musical “On Your Feet!” has posted its closing notice. Ashley is artistic director at La Jolla; “Come From Away” also played the theater prior to Broadway.

Frank Marshall, Mindy Rich, Anita Waxman and Beth Williams produce “Margaritaville,” which aims to get Buffett’s enthusiastic fans, known as Parrot Heads, to the box office. The score is drawn from Buffett’s catalog of tunes, which includes “Cheeseburger in Paradise,” “Volcano” and “Come Monday.”

“My Name is Earl” creator Greg Garcia and actor-writer Mike O’Malley (“Glee”) write the book, which follows a bartender named Tully who falls for a career-minded tourist. No casting for the Broadway production has been set, but the La Jolla cast is led by Paul Alexander Nolan and Alison Luff.

“Escape to Margaritaville” will begin previews Feb. 16, 2018 ahead of a March 15, 2018 opening.

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.
