Don’t Stop the Carnival Musical

From All Music

Herman Wouk's novel Don't Stop the Carnival -- a tale of a frustrated middle-aged man who dreams of escaping the city for tropical paradise -- is the ideal literary vehicle for Jimmy Buffett, a man who made a living selling suburbanites the tropical dream.

Buffett convinced Wouk to collaborate with him on a musical adaptation of the novel, which had a brief run in Miami in 1997.

To stir up interest in the project, Buffett recorded 20 songs from the show with his Coral Reefer Band.
