Out, out, damn grease spot! The world premiere of Scotland, PA—a musical about a power-hungry couple slashing their way to the top at a fast-food restaurant—opens at the Roundabout's Laura Pels Theatre October 23. Ahead of the opening, the cast stopped by Playbill for a whimsical photo shoot with french fries from The Counter, giving a modern twist to the show's psychedelic tone.
Adapted from Billy Morrissette's indie film of the same name (and William Shakespeare's Macbeth), the new musical has a score by Adam Gwon (Ordinary Days) and a book playwright Michael Mitnick (Sex Lives of Our Parents).
