Based on the 2001 cult classic, Scotland, PA is a brand new musical, which is set to premiere at the Roundabout Theatre Company's Off-Broadway stage in September 2019. Set for a limited engagement at the Laura Pels Theatre at the Harold and Miriam Center for Theatre, Scotland, PA is a deliciously dark, modern retelling of Shakespeare's classic, Macbeth. The 2001 film directed by Billy Morrissette thrilled and shocked the audiences with its true-to-life portrayal of human greed and the trappings of revenge, and this musical promises the same modern treatment to a classic story. The musical is scheduled to premiere on 23 October, 2019, and features some of the top names in show business. With an award-winning team of talented artists working tirelessly behind the scenes to bring the cult favorite to New York, you can expect a wickedly good time at the theatre and then some!

Scotland, PA : Off-Broadway Story
Scotland, PA is a story we know all too well; Shakespeare's Macbeth which featured the downfall of Macbeth and Lady Macbeth who got a little too comfortable with the killing that came with fulfilling their own selfish goals. The musical takes this basic premise and gives it a deliciously dark modern twist. The show is set in a sleepy Pennsylvania town with a population of 1,203. The story follows a burger restaurant manager and his wife who hatch a decidedly evil plan to get ahead in life.
With each step on their way to the top, the couple loses a part of themselves and leave an increasingly bloody pile of bodies behind. The show puts the couple through the wringer to test just how far they'll go to fulfill their good old American dream. Prepare yourself for a stellar production of a classic tale that masterfully showcases the thrill of dark humor.
Scotland, PA is suitable for audiences ages 12 and above given the dark nature of the story. Children under the age of 4 will not be allowed inside the theatre.
