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 (Ryan McCartan) and his wife (Taylor Iman Jones) 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.
Since Gwon’s Ordinary Days premiered at Roundabout in 2009, it has been produced around the world from Paris to Rio de Janeiro with his songs becoming concert standards for legendary singers such as Audra McDonald. Gwon’s commission Scotland, PA has been in development at Roundabout since 2014 with multiple readings and creative team workshops. This production marks the first new musical at the Laura Pels since Death Takes a Holiday in 2011. Roundabout is thrilled to welcome back longtime friends of the theater, director Lonny Price (110 in the Shade, Master Harold and the Boys), Music Director Vadim Feichtner (Ordinary Days) and actor Megan Lawrence (The Pajama Game, Holiday Inn: The New Irving Berlin Musical).
The creative team for Scotland, PA includes Anna Louizos (Scenic Design), Tracy Christensen (Costume Design), Jeanette Yew (Lighting Design), Jon Weston (Sound Design) and Frank Galgano & Matt Castle (Orchestrations).
