Escape to Margaritaville
"Aside from the music and dancing this show has a lot of laughs and that’s largely in part because of two veteran actors who know how to deliver them and make the crowd bust a gut by adding a little physical comedy.
The standout for me was Victor Legarreta who plays Brick, a bartender and Tully’s best friend who is smitten by Tammy played by Shannon Connolly. The two drop a ton of puns throughout but they have great chemistry and never miss a beat."

"Somehow, Greg Garcia and Mike O'Malley, who wrote the book for this fun musical experience, managed to incorporate key lyrics from Buffett's songs into dialogue and stage business. The set-ups are ingenious, much like red herrings in a mystery.
The leads in the contrived plot are a guitar-strumming bar singer played by Dale Obermark and the workaholic tourist who catches his eye played by Caitlin Lester-Sams. Both have vocal chops and affable stage presence to spare.
They'd better. The second bananas work hard to steal the show. Audience favorite Victor Legarreta spews puns like there's no tomorrow when he isn't duetting with Obermark. His love interest is played by Shannon Connolly. The twosome has been paired up in previous shows, and their rollicking chemistry is a joy to behold."
