VIDEO: Jimmy Buffett Leads a MARGARITAVILLE Sing Along on The Tonight Show
On last night's Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, Jimmy Buffett talked about his Margaritaville "active living communities" for retirees, vertical tailgating for his Broadway musical, Escape to Margaritaville, and breaking liquor sales records at the theater. He also led the audience in a sing along of the iconic song "Margaritaville!" Check out the clip below!
Escape to Margaritaville began performances at the Marquis Theatre on February 16 and officially opened last night, March 15.
Imagine a place where the sun is hot, the water's warm, and the drinks are as cold as they are plentiful. Welcome to Margaritaville, the island paradise where city folk get away from it all, and the locals get into the kind of trouble you can almost always sweet talk your way out of. Take a nice long break from your troubles, make some new friends at the bar, and kick back to the soothing sounds of the kettledrum. It doesn't get much better than this.
Escape to Margaritaville is the musical comedy getaway featuring both original songs and your most-loved Jimmy Buffett classics, including "Fins," "Volcano," "Cheeseburger in Paradise," and many more. With a book by Emmy® Award winner Greg Garcia and Emmy nominee Mike O'Malley, this rousing and refreshing new production is choreographed by Tony Award® nominee Kelly Devine and directed by Tony Award® Winner and La Jolla Playhouse Artistic Director Christopher Ashley.
