Mike O'Malley Brings Buffett to Broadway!

Escape to Margaritaville is the hot musical comedy with Jimmy Buffett classics!

May 10, 2018

Mike O'Malley, who co-wrote the bok for Escape to Margaritaville, has a wealth of credits to his name.  He's been in Eat, Pray, Love and Deep Impact and Concussion and 28 Days and also hosted Guts on Nickelodeon...remember that???  As if that wasn't enough, he's created three back-to-back syndicated comedies:  Yes, Dear, My Name is Earl, and Raising Hope.

His crowning glory, however, might be this feel-good, Jimmy Buffett musical wherein...he promises...absolutely no one dies.

"No one dies.  No one in the audience is crying.  No one on stage is crying."

It's not that he doesn't appreciate theatre; it's that he wanted to bring laughter to a Broadway stage, and an experience for the layperson, and a good time with great music in a comfortable setting.  The result is Escape to Margariaville, which the Los Angeles Times praises as, "...Filled with brilliant songwriting."

And he was interviewed by Marilyn Russell all about theatre, his successes, "guys who don't like musicals", and more!  Check it out below!
