The Broadway-bound Jimmy Buffet musical "Escape to Margaritaville", set to premiere at the La Jolla Playhouse in May, has extended its run due to popular demand.
The musical, based off the music of Jimmy Buffet, will kick off La Jolla Playhouse's 2017-2018 season this May. "Escape to Margaritaville" opens on May 9 and closes on June 25, extended week included.
Tickets for many of the shows have already sold out, Playhouse officials said, prompting them to extend the show for another week.
The story follows a part-time bartender and part-time singer who falls for a beautiful tourist, a woman who makes him question the life he thought he had figured out. Book by Greg Garcia ("My Name Is Earl", "Raising Hope") and Mike O'Malley ("My Name Is Earl", "Justified", "Glee").
The musical will be told with a unique blend of original, new songs in addition to Jimmy Buffet classics. Buffet is known for hits like "Margaritaville", "Come Monday", "Changes in Latitudes, Changes in Attitudes", "Manana", and more.
Individual tickets and group tickets are now on sale; returning subscribers will receive first access to tickets. Tickets for the extended week are already on sale.
After its San Diego premiere, the show will go on to New Orleans, Houston, Chicago and, ultimately, Broadway for a Spring 2018 run.
