Synopsis: 

Of course Jimmy Buffett’s new Broadway jukebox musical “Escape to Margaritaville” comes with a lost shaker of salt.

But what’s with the sparkly zombie kickline, fat-shaming fiancé and so-called super potato that can power appliances? Somebody’s had too many margaritas.

But so it goes in this musical that may fit the bill if you’re in the mood for a breezy but dopey diversion. A few pre-theater margaritas may enhance things.

It doesn’t take a die-hard fan — aka Parrothead— to know why the “gulf and western” singer-songwriter is so popular. Buffett songs tell character-driven stories in laid-back, amusing and randy fashion.
