Buffett hands out burgers at ‘Margaritaville’ box office

From PlayBill.com: “See Jimmy Buffett Help Open the Box Office For Escape to Margaritaville

The box office at the Marquis Theatre opened for business (and free burgers!) on December 8.

Jimmy Buffett took to the streets of New York City on December 8 to help open the box office for his musical Escape to Margaritaville at Broadway’s Marquis Theatre. Buffett was handing out free hamburgers to theatregoers and passersby—a nod to his song “Cheeseburger in Paradise.”

As part of Escape to Margaritaville’s ongoing hurricane relief efforts, $5 from every ticket purchase made at the box office December 8 will be donated to One America Appeal, a non-profit organization founded by all five living former U.S. Presidents to aid hurricane victims in the U.S. and in the Caribbean. To date, the show has raised more than $110,000 for hurricane relief.

Following its pre-Broadway tour, the new musical will begin previews February 16, 2018, prior to an official opening March 15 at the Marquis.


One thought on “Buffett hands out burgers at ‘Margaritaville’ box office

  1. We have planned a whole trip for 10 people (including some die hard up and coming little Parrot Heads) around the “opening” night for “Escape” in NYC on Feb. 16th. Did not realize that the official opening is going to be in March. We were counting on Jimmy being at the opening (as he was in all other preview cities) and now I see he is planning to be in Florida on Feb. 17th…Does anyone have any insight or thoughts on if he’d actually be in NYC for the 2/16/18 performance??? We may cancel our trip if this is the case and come to the date in March…Please, any advice or insider info would be most appreciated–this is a once in a lifetime trip for some in our group! I’d even be willing to sign a confidentiality agreement to not leak the info!!!!
