More details were unveiled on Monday for the upcoming Jimmy Buffett musical, now titled “Escape to Margaritaville.”

A world premiere in California is set for Jimmy Buffett’s musical, which has just brought aboard some accomplished Broadway veterans.

“The musical, now titled ‘Escape to Margaritaville,’ will feature choreography by Kelly Devine (‘Rocky’), scenic design by Walt Spangler (‘Tuck Everlasting’), costumes by Paul Tazewell (‘Hamilton’), lighting by Howell Binkley (‘Hamilton’) and sound design by Brian Ronan (‘If/Then’),” the AP reports. “The show, combining Buffett’s tunes with an original story by writers Greg Garcia and Mike O’Malley, will start grooving onstage in May 2017 at La Jolla Playhouse. Playhouse artistic director Christopher Ashley will direct.”

According to Hollywood Reporter, the musical will begin previews on May 16, 2017, ahead of its opening night on May 28, and will play through June 25 at La Jolla in San Diego.
