Jimmy Buffett is Headed to Broadway!

As KICK-FM’s resident Jimmy Buffett documentarian, it is my duty to inform you of a new entertainment avenue being explored by the King of the Parrotheads. He’s already dominated the music scene, and by extension, the concert scene. He has hit restaurants. He’s appeared in film (Hook, Jurrassic World) and television (Hawaii Five-0). And now he’s taking over the Great White Way.

Jimmy Buffett’s musical is of course called “Escape to Margaritaville” and features some of his classic hits, as well as some new songs, all based around the story of a part-time bartender who finds love. You know… normal stage play stuff. The show originally premiered earlier this year in California, before traveling to Houston, New Orleans and Chicago, and will end up at the world’s theatre capital by March of next year.

Buffett is just the latest in a long line of artists to have their music adapted into stage musicals, with ABBA, The Million Dollar Quartet (Elvis, Johnny Cash, Carl Perkins, Jerry Lee Lewis), Queen, Green Day, Sinatra, Billy Joel and Frankie Valli & The Four Seasons all have modestly to hugely successful stage shows adapted from their song books. OH! And of course.

I can’t wait for 10-15 years when Quincy Community Theatre can put on their own version. I can’t sing, but I’ll learn just to be a part of it. QUICK! TO THE VOCAL LESSON PLACE!
