About Scotland, PA:

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.

Book by Michael Mitnick and Music & Lyrics by Adam Gwon (based on a film written by Billy Morrissette)

Our Scotland, PA Review

Let’s start with the premise. Scotland, PA, now playing at the Laura Pels Theatre, is a musical parody of Shakespeare's The Tragedy of Macbeth. Go ahead and read that sentence again. 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. ... Read more
