    For all the books, movies and sitcoms that have either eulogized or vilified them, the suburbs have been largely ignored by musical theatre—until now. Suburb takes an insightful, witty and nuanced view of the world of the lawnmower, barbecue and the mall, exploring the suburb's rites and rituals with a chorus and four main characters. The stories of these four people—interwoven with the chorus's frequent musical reveries on subjects like mowing the lawn, the mall and the perfection of perfectly grilled meat—form the road map of Suburb.

    Cyrano! His wit is as sharp as his sword, the enormity of his talent, intellect and passion matched only by the enormity of his, well, nose. The uniquely endowed protagonist is given a fresh face in this poignant and playful paean to panache, written in rhyming couplets. Romance rules the day in this story of his classic love triangle with the exquisite Roxane and the handsome and earnest, but verbally challenged, Christian. Learn More

    In 1789 in an Australian penal colony, a marine lieutenant decides to put on a play to celebrate the king's birthday.
