From CBS Miami: Jimmy Buffett’s “Escape to Margaritaville” takes audiences to that place where the air is warm, the colors are bright and worry is gone.

Just like the songs the singer, songwriter and author has performed for more than four decades, this is a high-energy musical that celebrates his style.

“Escape to Margaritaville” had a Broadway run in 2018. It’s now making its South Florida premiere at the Broward Center for the Performing Arts.

“I said take the songs that you think will work in show and move the energy and make it fun,” Buffett said.

“’Margaritaville’ is fun but ‘Fins’ is more animated. You get to choreograph yourself.  It’s not hardcore choreography,” he said laughing, holding the “fins” over his head.

Buffett said he’ll continue to tour, surf, write and enjoy the accolades – this summer lovin’ performer has most certainly earned.

“Escape to Margaritaville” is on at the Broward Center for the Performing Arts now through December 1st. For tickets, visit: BrowardCenter.org.
