    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.
