On a field trip to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, Dee, José and Annie accidentally knock George Washington out of his portrait and into real life, turning their White House tour into an unexpected adventure. As they try to get the nation's first president back into his painting, they encounter Jacqueline Kennedy; Abraham Lincoln and his wife, Mary Todd; Dolley Madison; and other famous White House residents. Together, they learn that the White House isn't just a historic building—it's also a home.

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.
