Happy 76th Birthday to Jimmy Buffett!

December 25th, 2022

BuffettWorld.com would like to wish Jimmy Buffett a very happy 76th birthday today.

Born December 25th, 1946 to James Delaney Buffett and Mary Loraine, Jimmy shares his birthday with Humphrey Bogart, Sir Isaac Newton, Barbara Mandrell, Sissy Spacek, Annie Lennox, Justin Trudeau, Karl Rove, and Jesus Christ.

Jimmy wrote this about his birthday and Christmas for his 1996 album Christmas Island:

For those of you who didn’t know, I was born on Christmas Day 1946, the day W.C. Fields died. I think this only goes to prove that God does have a sense of humor, but being born on Christmas was rough going at first. The most obvious scam was to try and double up on presents. “Here’s your Birthday and Christmas present.” I even knew at that young tender age that a scam was in progress and it did not sit well with me. More importantly, it did not sit well with my mother, who made it known, in no uncertain terms to the aunts, uncles and cousins of the Buffett clan strung out along the Gulf coast, that she expected two presents for her bouncing baby boy-one for his birthday and one for Christmas. On the whole it worked quite well, though there were a few Scrooge like occurrences where I would get socks for my birthday and a tie for Christmas. This probably is the reason I never have liked to wear either since.

Happy birthday Jimmy and Happy Holidays to all!

‘Escape to Margaritaville’ Musical’s Songs to be Released

November 9th, 2017

On the day that the ‘Escape to Margaritaville’ musical debuts on Broadway, fans at home will be able to hear the songs from the show:

This coming February, Broadway audiences will get the chance to see Jimmy Buffett’s first-ever musical, Escape to Margaritaville.

But Parrotheads and theater fans alike the world over will be able to hear the show’s songs the same day as its first Broadway performance (Feb. 16, 2018) when the Escape to Margaritaville cast recording is released digitally on and on CD on Buffett’s Mailboat Records, the label and producers Frank Marshall, Mindy Rich, Anita Waxman and Beth Williams announced exclusively through Billboard today.

The cast recording — which will be recorded this month in Chicago and features original Buffett songs alongside classics like “Come Monday,” “Volcano” and “Cheeseburger in Paradise” — is the first of its kind on Buffett’s Mailboat label.

“I always felt that an album should be a musical journey, and I have made a few of them,” Buffett says in a statement. “The amazing thing to me about this project is that the collection of classic and new songs, chosen from a treasure chest of material, never perceived by yours truly as such a journey, became one. It is a strange and wonderful feeling to hear your songs sung by others with the new and exciting mission to create a melodic ship on which the story of Escape to Margaritaville can sail.”

Calling out producers Mac McAnally, Mike Utley, and Chris Jahnke as his “veteran captains,” Buffett adds, “I have been listening to the cast sing these songs from the front of the house, which is a strange seat for me, for the past several months. From LaJolla, to New Orleans, Houston and Chicago, I marvel at how our crew and their interpretations of both classic and new songs, are taking the good ship Margaritaville towards a new and exciting port of call — Broadway.”

The main cast for the Escape to Margaritaville musical has been announced.

Paul Alexander Nolan will sink his teeth into a starring role (and perhaps a cheeseburger in paradise?) in the Broadway-aimed Jimmy Buffett musical Escape to Margaritaville. The Bright Star standout will headline the production’s world premiere at La Jolla Playhouse. He is set to play Tully, a part-time bartender and singer. Broadway alums Alison Luff and Lisa Howard will take on the roles of Rachel and Tammy, respectively. Performances of the Christopher Ashley-helmed musical are scheduled to begin on May 9. As previously announced, a Great White Way opening is slated for spring 2018.

Nolan’s Broadway credits include Chicago, Doctor Zhivago, Jesus Christ Superstar and Once. Luff was last seen on the Great White Way in Les Misérables; she also appeared in Matilda, Scandalous and Ghost. Howard last appeared on Broadway in It Shoulda Been You. Her additional Great White Way credits include Priscilla Queen of the Desert, 9 to 5, South Pacific and The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee.

The La Jolla engagement is scheduled to run through June 25. The production will then go to New Orleans’ Saenger Theatre from October 20 through 28. Performances at Houston’s Hobby Center will run from October 31 through November 5. The Chicago stint is set for November 9 through December 3. Further casting will be announced at a later date.
