The world premiere of Scotland, PA opens at the Roundabout's Laura Pels Theatre October 23 after beginning preview performances September 14. The new musical by composer-lyricist Adam Gwon (Ordinary Days) and playwright Michael Mitnick (Sex Lives of Our Parents) is scheduled to run through December 8.
Adapted from Billy Morrissette's indie film of the same name (and William Shakespeare's Macbeth), Scotland, PA tells the story of a couple running a burger joint in a sleepy Pennsylvania town who cook up a (bloodthirsty) plan to super-size their lives.
