From the Chicago Tribune: “Tickets on sale for ‘Jimmy Buffett in Conversation with Chris Jones’”
Are you a pirate two hundred years too late? Got a Caribbean soul you can barely control? When you see a salt shaker, do you worry it will get lost?
If you answered yes to any or all of the above — or even if you just are intrigued by a singer-songwriter whose career spans some 45 years and has ranged from protest songs to the consummate party ditties — you should join me for a frank, intimate, no-holds-barred conversation with Jimmy Buffett. We’ll talk about his career, his relationship with his fans, his fast-growing Margaritaville empire (yes, there are plans for retirement homes) and his new Broadway musical, “Escape to Margaritaville.”
“Jimmy Buffett in Conversation with Chris Jones” is 6-8 p.m. Monday, July 17 at the Broadway Playhouse, 175 E. Chestnut St., Chicago. Tickets at tribtix.com. “Escape to Margaritaville” is coming Nov. 9 to the Oriental Theatre, 24 W. Randolph St.; more at broadwayinchicago.com.
