Hit the Blue Carpet for Opening Night of ESCAPE TO MARGARITAVILLE!
Escape to Margaritaville, the new musical featuring the songs of iconic singer-songwriter-author Jimmy Buffett, opens tonight at the Marquis Theatre (210 West 46th Street) with a star-studded celebration of the eagerly anticipated musical's Broadway premiere.
Jimmy Buffett himself weighed in on their big Broadway opening today, stating, "It's a cold morning in New York City, but inside the Marquis Theatre - where we're about to open Escape to Margaritaville - it's 80 degrees and 5 o'clock. A lot of people have said over the years that Margaritaville isn't a place, it's a state of mind. Now I know that the same is true of Broadway. It's the most exciting street in the middle of the greatest island in the whole entire world."
