"And, our talented performers are ready, willing and able to take you on a vacation, without ever leaving your seat."

Escape to Margaritaville features a book by Emmy winner Greg Garcia and Emmy nominee Mike O'Malley along with original songs and beloved Jimmy Buffett classics, such as "Fins," "Volcano," "Cheeseburger in Paradise," and many more.
