It features a book by Greg Garcia and Mike O’Malley, choreography by Kelly Devine and direction by Christopher Ashley.
“Escape to Margaritaville,” has a national tour scheduled for October 2019, beginning in Providence, Rhode Island. The cast will also perform alongside Buffett on the PBS special “A Capitol Fourth,” a few days after closing.
