Jimmy Buffett has been making a career out of good food, good times and good music for more than 40 years. The singer, songwriter, business entrepreneur, restaurateur, and best-selling author is adding a new job to his long resume: Broadway musical composer. Escape to Margaritaville, a new musical comedy, makes is pre-Broadway debut right here in New Orleans Oct. The musical features original songs, as well as many of the tunes Parrotheads have come to know by heart. The production team also includes several Tony and Emmy Award winners. New Orleanians have a unique relationship with Buffett, embracing both his beach combing lifestyle and a mutual love of libations and festing at the Fairgrounds. We tracked the troubadour down to discuss our cultural connections, musical debuts and the true story behind that famous cheeseburger. It was not my decision, but I am overjoyed that New Orleans and the Saenger were chosen. I have a long history with both the town and the theatre. My uncle Jack Rappaport had an office in the Saenger, and I would watch movies and shows from the balcony for free as a year-old.
