Preview of “Escape to Margaritaville” on Wednesday, February 21.
The sold-out crowd on the first night of preview were so engaged, that they finished the Marquis Theatre’s entire supply of margaritas and set a new bar sales records.
The crowd was a lot thinner on this second night. The mezz was about 1/3 filled. The music was good. The title song “Escape to Margaritaville” was still the most memorable and recognizable score. The plot left much to be desired though.
