Photographer Jenny Anderson (who shot our fabulous Classic New York Films and Tony Awards Parties photos) brings BroadwayBox backstage for an exclusive series capturing Broadway companies getting ready to take the stage. For the next installment, Jenny heads to the Marquis Theatre, home to the fun, new Jimmy Buffett musical Escape to Margaritaville as they get beach bum ready and prepare for a Wednesday matinee.

First thing to know: backstage at the Marquis, you can expect to see plenty guitars and plenty of people playing guitars. It’s Buffett after all.

Ryann Redmond has been a complete joy in every Broadway musical she’s been in: Bring It On, If/Then, and now Escape to Margaritaville. Her airline security officer and bar piano player will have you LOL.
