Why Watch Scotland, PA

Based on the 2001 film of the same name, directed by William Morrissette, Scotland, PA is considered to be a modernized version of Macbeth by William Shakespeare. The story is set in 1975 in the small town of Scotland, Pennsylvania inside a fast-food restaurant. The musical features a team of award-winning choreographers, writers and musicians and is guaranteed to awe audiences from across the world at Broadway. Michael Mitnick, who has received acclaim for plays such as “The Siegel” and “Mysterious Circumstances” is in charge of the writing. The music and lyrics are by Adam Gwon, of “Ordinary Days” fame, and he is joined by music director Vadim Fletcher.

The dark comedy has been in development since 2014 at Roundabout Underground and is all set to dazzle at the Broadway stage. Mitnick shifts the tale of murderous ambition to America for a thrilling new musical!

The Story

It is the year 1975 in the sleepy town of Scotland situated in Pennsylvania. The town’s burger joint is managed by the husband-wife duo of McCartan and Jones, who are fed up with their boring lives. They come up with a plan to super-size their lives, but things, however, take a turn for the deadly. Their selfish goal leaves numerous bodies in its wake and the couple find their stars on the rise. Over time, the couple’s ambition grows, but a police officer, however, takes an interest in the duo. How far are they willing to go to achieve the American Dream?
