Obrigado to Serve as Official Beverage Sponsor of Broadway Show ‘Escape to Margaritaville’

IRVINE, Calif. — Theatregoers can now sip on a refreshing and delicious beverage while enjoying Escape to Margaritaville, the new Broadway musical comedy featuring the songs of iconic singer-songwriter-author Jimmy Buffett, thanks to a sponsorship by Obrigado coconut water. The international beverage brand is the official non-alcoholic beverage sponsor of the Broadway show.

Escape to Margaritaville is now playing at Broadway’s Marquis Theatre (210 West 46th Street) where it began performances on February 16, 2018 ahead of an Opening Night on Thursday, March 15, 2018. The musical takes place on a tropical island and features both original songs and the most-loved Jimmy Buffett classics. The theatre includes colorful, island-style bars serving Obrigado coconut water.

“Obrigado coconut water is sourced from Brazil, which is known for its tropical paradise,” said Leonardo Castello Branco, Marketing Director at Obrigado. “We’re excited to serve as the official beverage sponsor of a fun show like Escape to Margaritaville that mirrors the vibe of our brand.”

The company owns its own farms in Bahia, Brazil, where it grows its trees and gives each tree a barcode for complete traceability. To ensure the freshest taste, Obrigado also uses a patented extraction method that prevents air and light – which can alter the taste – from touching the coconut water.
