WHAT IS A COMMISION?


A commission is an agreement between an artist and a theatre company in which the theatre pays an artist to create a new work, often in exchange for the right to produce that show’s world premiere.


Oct. 30- Nov. 17, 2017


Roundabout hosts a third workshop with the goal of more fully mounting the show to explore how its production elements—things like staging, set, costumes, etc.—might add to the storytelling. The almost- fully-staged presentation at the end of the workshop features rehearsal props, custom-made rehearsal set pieces, simple costumes, and some choreography. Adam and Michael rework the script and score throughout the process, and their revisions include a rewrite of the song “Bad Dream” as well as changes to many other scenes.


Feb. 18- March 8, 2019


April 10- 20, 2017


Roundabout hosts a fourth and final workshop of Scotland, PA, which ends in the most fully-staged presentation of the show yet. Incorporating extensive choreography by Josh Rhodes, scenic elements by set designer Anna Louizos, and a full array of rehearsal props and costumes, this workshop allows Adam and Michael to fine tune the journey that each character takes through the story. To this end, Adam and Michael rewrite or delete some songs. One existing melody is given new lyrics, turning it into the pivotal song “What We’ve Got.” After this workshop, the show is programmed, or scheduled, for a full production in Roundabout’s 2019-2020 season.

A full draft of the musical is now completed, with the

Oct. 20- 28, 2018 The Scotland, PA team workshops the


musical with students at Northwestern University as part of Northwestern’s American Music Theatre Project. Adam and Michael continue to revise and rewrite the musical, even completely changing the show’s opening number. This workshop culminates in a concert reading performed by students at Northwestern.
