Show Notes:

After pre-Broadway tryouts in La Jolla CA and also Chicago, Houston, and New Orleans, this show headed to Broadway. As its title suggests, the musical is parrot-head friendly, chock full of Jimmy Buffett tunes. The show made its “soft opening” Broadway premiere on Feb. 16, with an official opening night on March 15. (For more details on the production, see Bryan Reesman’s “Theater Sound” feature, FOH, June 2018, pages 46-47.)
