Did anyone else get the email survey from Margaritaville about musicals?
Would you go to NYC to see a Broadway musical using Jimmy Buffett's music?
How much would you pay?

I did...I took the time and filled it out.

I have mixed feelings about it....

I think it could be cool but also has potential to turn some great songs into bad broadway covers....

It is almost like going to see a bad cover band

I didn't get it but even if I still lived on Long Island I wouldn't be interested.

First Frankie Vallie (Jersey Boys). Then Billy Joel (Movin' Out). Currently on Broadway: Emilio and Gloria Estefan (On Your Feet!).

When is it going to stop? Maybe the first 2 are ok. But the others? Not so much.

Mama Mia just used their music. The other 3 are/were biographical.

I did not get the survey, but I would indeed check it out if it comes to fruition!

Got the survey, but I don't think they will like my responses. Seems like more cashing-in on a couple of best-selling songs and books. The more I went through the survey, the less interest I had in ever seeing it. They might get people to see it once, but I don't think it will have the depth to be a classic and hang around for years. It definitely sounds like it will intentionally not be anything like his concerts. I also don't see it being a substitute for a concert, so I hope he isn't cashing in his touring show for this musical. I would think that if he did that, it could possibly have an adverse impact on his bottom line.
