In Scotland, PA, revenge is a dish best served with fries. This deliciously dark new musical comedy, based on the cult film (and the bard's Macbeth), springs to life in a sleepy Pennsylvania town (population 1,203—and dropping), where a burger-joint manager and his wife cook up a plan to super-size their lives. As their ambitions grow and the bodies fall, the couple finds out just how far they’ll go for a taste of the oh-so-tempting American dream.

It doesn't change. Would that it did.This is yet another in the list of "Never blame the actors" (said by John Randolph) productions. The cast is an extremely talented and committed group of actors and singers. Some of the singing is downright sublime.There ends the good news.This is the story of a young couple, Mac...
