ESCAPE TO MARGARITAVILLE | AUGUST 15 - 27
Directed by Eric Petersen
Produced by Brendan Ragotzy
Calling all Parrot Heads! The Barn Theatre is excited to bring you JIMMY BUFFETT’S ESCAPE TO MARGARITAVILLE starring Broadway original cast member Barnie Eric Petersen! This party is playing through August 27.
You will be transported to a tropical island getaway! Leading our visit is part-time bartender, part-time singer, and full-time charmer, Tully, portrayed by Luke Ragotzy. He thinks he’s got life all figured out—until a beautiful tourist, Rachel, portrayed by second-year apprentice Lizzie Maguire, steals his heart and makes him question everything. Rachel has booked a trip to Margaritaville on a bachelorette trip for her friend Tammy, first-year apprentice Elizabeth Volpe. Starring as the island bartender is Eric Petersen, who brings his brilliant comedic timing once again to the Barn in his original Broadway role of Brick.
Fun Fact: Eric first began his relationship with the Barn in 2003. He met his wife, Barnie Lisa Morabito, that season and returned for several seasons. Margaritaville marks his 20th show at the Barn.
The cast also features Broadway veteran Carrie Compere as Marley, the owner of the island hotel, Charlie King, as J.D., a one-eyed beach bum, Chicago newcomer Brandon Boler, portraying Jamal, the hotel worker, as well as the entire company.
This hilarious, heartwarming musical comedy features the most-loved Jimmy Buffett classics, including “Cheeseburger in Paradise”, “Margaritaville,” “It’s Five O’Clock Somewhere,” “Fins,” “Volcano,” “Come Monday,” and many more!
First presented at The La Jolla Playhouse in May 2017, Margaritaville had limited runs in New Orleans, Houston, and Chicago. It opened on Broadway in February 2018 at the Marriott Marquis Theatre and ran for 29 previews and 124 performances.
