Set in the Scottish Highlands during the Jacobite uprising of 1745, the new musical Loch Lomond brings to life a legend behind the famous lyrics, “You take the high road and I’ll take the low road…” Cast into an English prison with no hope of escape, brothers Lyle and James confront the hopes, lies, losses, and loves that led them to this point, remember the women they left behind, and reckon with the ultimate choice that will carry them home.
Traditional Scottish folk ballads and Celtic-inspired contemporary music infuse this gripping, intimate story of love and sacrifice during one of history’s most infamous rebellions.

High roads, high notes
by Bennett Campbell Ferguson
Oregon ArtsWatch, Oct. 6, 021
Broadway Rose Theatre Company’s new Loch Lomond is a majestic musical tragedy about love, obsessions, and duty…set largely in the Scottish Highlands during the Jacobite uprising of 1745, but it’s less a history lesson than a meditation on marriage and brotherhood… Read more.

A Scottish legend comes to the stage
by Judy Nedry
