Saw this show in Chicago last year. I wasn't the biggest Jimmy Buffett fan although I knew his music. I'd say I was familiar with about a third of the songs that were in the show. But that didn't stop me from really enjoying it. My favorite part was the humor. The show was way funnier than I expected because it wasn't really advertised as a comedy so I wasn't expecting that at all. And seeing how they brought everything together using his songs was really cool. Not sure how Jimmy Buffett managed to do that but I guess he's written a few books so he knows a thing or two about story telling. There were a few songs I thought were slow but nothing that would stop me from going again. If you're looking for a fun night out this is definitely the escape that it promises to be. Be warned that there might be some super fans that sing along to the songs. Some people near me were annoyed by that but I didn't mind.

This show was great! It was exciting and just great overall, the love story was great and also included hilarious humor at the same time! I recommend this 100 percent to everyone!!!

I really enjoyed the performance of Escape to Margaritaville. I have been a loyal fan of Jimmy Buffett for years, and the play gave me a new way to think about the music I enjoy listening to. I was very impressed on how the play was written around the songs I know my heart.

If you are willing to “escape” this is a great show! Lots of fun for an evening. Loved the performances of the cast!

I thoroughly enjoyed Margaritaville for what it is... a kitschy musical built around Jimmy Buffet songs. The setting is a third-rate beach resort on an unnamed island with a volcano, the singing, dance choreography and set changes fit and added to the setting. It’s what I would expect to find at an all-inclusive beach resort and left me wanting to plan a low-key beach vacay of my own. Buffet songs were cleverly woven into the plot line, adding to the humor and fun.

Just OK....seemed like something put together hastily as a vehicle for the music.Cast weren't the best singers and watching the scenery switches it felt a bit like I was watching a high school play.I generally LOVE musicals like this (have seen Jersey Boys 5 times!) but won't be repeating this one.

I agree with other post that voices were high pitched and off key. Not worth $85...C-
