Featured Reviews For Escape to Margaritaville


Only Diehard Jimmy Buffett Fans Should ‘Escape to Margaritaville’ on Broadway - Daily Beast
Do you have to be a fan of Jimmy Buffett to love the jukebox musical Escape to Margaritaville? No, but it certainly helps. Make mine something lividly colored and very cold, please barman. And keep them coming. It may be the only way to get through this.

Jimmy Buffett’s music comes to Broadway and, well, the beach party’s a dud - Washington Post
Yes, Jimmy Buffett, it's your own damn fault. Oh, I know, you had help in the commission of "Escape to Margaritaville," the lamely antiseptic musical that had its official Broadway opening Thursday night at the Marquis Theatre. But it's your songs that book writers Greg Garcia and Mike O'Malley have spun into this insufferably dumb show, about a beach bum guitarist who falls for an environmental scientist while his bartender buddy suffers flashbacks filled with tap-dancing life insurance agents. (Yup, you read that right.)

Broadway's Paul Alexander Nolan has been on quite the ride with Escape to Margaritaville - a vibrant, fun, and blissful musical featuring the iconic hits of Jimmy Buffett. With stops in La Jolla, Chicago, Houston, and New Orleans before reaching the Great White Way in early 2018, Escape to Margaritaville has become the vacation we all so desperately need to take -- with an emphasis on living in the moment and savoring the good times.

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.

The smiling, bobbing head and swaying shoulders of the self-proclaimed Parrothead who accompanied this Jimmy Buffett neophyte to the breezy fun new jukebox musical comedy, ESCAPE TO MARGARITAVILLE, seemed proof enough that fans of the Mississippi-born singer/songwriter known for carefree Caribbean-inspired melodies should have a swell time.
