Spreading that summer feeling!

Jimmy Buffet's sunny new musical, Escape to Margaritaville, is heading out across North America in 2019 for their first national tour! With an emphasis on 'not sweating the small stuff' Buffet's musical oozes with the musicians greatest hits, with it's chilled out party atmosphere it's time to Escape to Margaritaville!

With a book by Greg Garcia and Mike O'Malley and music and lyrics by Buffet himself, this semi-autobiographical musical is named after Buffet's 1977 smash hit 'Margaritaville' which also saw the star inducted into the 2016 Grammy Hall of Fame. Depicting images of ice-cold cocktails and bright beaches, Escape to Margaritaville celebrates life on a tropical island, and is sure you to leave you with that glowing summer feeling.

What is Escape to Margaritaville about?

Escape to Margaritaville follows the fortunes of charming bartender and singer Tully, who spends his days between shifts seducing the rich female tourists on the tropical island of Margaritaville. Known as a local ladykiller, Tully can sweet-talk his way out of almost any scrape he finds himself in, whether it be an irate husband or frustrated boss. That is until the arrival of a lone, single female tourist who takes her career seriously; Tully falls head over heels but she is as frosty as the drinks he serves behind the bar. Can he win her heart before she flies home, and will the swaying palms and warm summer breeze convince them to both change their ways?
