From Broadway World: “Escape to Margaritaville to Close July 1 on Broadway”
Escape to Margaritaville, the new musical featuring the songs of singer-songwriter-author Jimmy Buffett, will play its final Broadway performance at the Marquis Theatre on Sunday, July 1, 2018, after 29 preview and 124 regular performances.
The first stop after Broadway will be Washington, D.C., where Jimmy Buffett and the cast of Escape to Margaritaville will perform on PBS’ “A Capitol Fourth,” celebrating America’s 242nd birthday, on Wednesday, July 4th from 8:00-9:30pm ET.
The Escape to Margaritaville National Tour will officially set sail in October 2019 at the Providence Performing Arts Center in Providence, Rhode Island, before traveling to additional cities throughout the country. The full tour schedule and other information will be announced shortly.
Escape to Margaritaville had its world premiere at La Jolla Playhouse in Spring 2017 where it broke all records, and embarked on a pre-Broadway tour playing New Orleans’ Saenger Theatre, Houston’s Hobby Center, and Chicago’s Oriental Theatre.
