Calling all Parrot Heads! Opry City Stage, New York City’s new home for authentic Southern food and daily live country music in the heart of Times Square, is partnering up with Broadway’s new musical Escape to Margaritaville to host “Island Fridays,” the show’s official after-party. The new partnership will kick-off on Friday, June 1, 2018, at 10pm.
“On Friday nights from 10pm to 1am, starting on June 1, 2018, the country music destination will transform into an energetic island oasis. Every Friday in June, fans can experience live Jimmy Buffett tunes, performed by Opry City Stage Superband and Island Country Band. The bands will also play the best of Zac Brown and Kenny Chesney. In addition, attendees can enjoy special drink deals on margaritas, as well as participate in live giveaways for tickets to the new Broadway hit. “Island Fridays” at Opry City Stage are open to the public – there are no cover fees or tickets required.”
Escape to Margaritaville, the People’s Musical, is an upbeat and energetic new show featuring favorite Jimmy Buffet classics, including “Volcano,” “Fins,” “Cheeseburger in Paradise,” and many more. With a book filled with laughs from Emmy Award-winner Greg Garcia (My Name is Earl) and Emmy-nominee Mike O’Malley (Shameless), this electrifying new production is choreographed by Tony Award-nominee Kelly Devine (Rock of Ages) and directed by Tony Award-winner Christopher Ashley (Come From Away). There’s no better place to relax, sing along, and have the time of your life – and now, the audience can continue the party every Friday at Opry City Stage, just a few blocks from the Marquis Theatre where the show is currently playing.
In addition to the daily live performances by a broad range of great country music talent to accompany guests’ drinks and meals, Opry City Stage also recently launched a variety of new and unique series including: a spin on Bruce Springsteen classics during a weekly after party for the ongoing sold-out Springsteen on Broadway which takes place less than a block from Opry City Stage; Two-Step lessons with live music on Tuesdays with a renowned dance instructor; movie nights on Thursdays featuring showings of The Sheriff of Goodtimes, a new short documentary about Sheriff Bob, the Bluegrass scene in Greenwich Village and his long contribution to the genre and more.
