On Monday, we had the pleasure of organizing a press junket with the creators of ESCAPE TO MARGARITAVILLE to promote the ticket-on-sale announcement for the new musical comedy getaway that will make its pre-Broadway premiere in New Orleans this fall. The event included exclusive interviews with ESCAPE TO MARGARITAVILLE creators Jimmy Buffett (music & lyrics), Greg Garcia (book writer), Mike O’Malley (book writer), Christopher Ashley (director) and Kelly Devine (choreographer).
ESCAPE TO MARGARITAVILLE will be the first Broadway musical to launch out of New Orleans. Why New Orleans you ask?
During Monday’s press junket at the Saenger Theatre, Buffett revealed “I had my first kind of moments of thinking about having a career as a performer right here in this theatre, so it’s an amazing feelings to be back.” CLICK HERE to read more on how the Saenger Theatre inspired Buffett’s career in show business.
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 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. More than a musical, ESCAPE TO MARGARITAVILLE is a way of life.
ESCAPE TO MARGARITAVILLE will kick-off the 2017-2018 Broadway in New Orleans season at The Saenger Theatre Oct. 20 – 28, 2017. For more information, visit www.BroadwayInNewOrleans.com.
