NEW YORK – The Jimmy Buffett musical making its world premiere this year in California will make stops in New Orleans, Houston and Chicago before docking on Broadway.

“Escape to Margaritaville,” combining Buffett’s tunes with an original story by writers Greg Garcia and Mike O’Malley, will start grooving onstage starting May 9 at La Jolla Playhouse in La Jolla, a San Diego suburb.

It then goes to New Orleans from Oct. 20-28, Houston from Oct. 31-Nov. 5 and Chicago from Nov. 9-Dec. 3. It hopes to reach Broadway by spring of 2018.
