Big announcement from the Roundabout Theatre Company! Todd Haimes, CEO, has announced a brand new musical called Scotland, PA. It features a book by Michael Mitnick, music & lyrics by Adam Gwon, and directed by Lonny Price.
From the synopsis in the press release, “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.”
Performances will begin September 14th at the Laura Pels Theatre in the Harold Miriam Steinberg Center for Theatre. Opening night is set for October 15, 2019. Still no word on the full cast and crew, but we’ll be sure to keep you updated as we learn more about this new and exciting musical!
