This is one of those shows whose premise you cannot make up. Scotland, PA is a musical parody of The Tragedy Of Macbeth.
What could possibly go wrong? Other than everything. Well THAT is not entirely true. The cast for this show is outstanding. Great acting chops, sublime voices, and a grit to get the job done. A total delight watching them. Except for the fact that they were in this show.
Follow me here. A mild mannered couple stuck in dead end jobs at the local burger joint get it into their heads (mostly hers) to do whatever it takes to get up a few rungs on the ladder that their present employer has denied them. An accident turns into one new burger joint named – wait for it – McBeth’s. There follows more murder, mayhem, death and destruction. Sort of like a car accident from which you cannot turn away.
