Suburb - The Musical

Suburb - The Musical $10.99

David Javerbaum & Robert S. Cohen

Published by Dramatic Publishing

4 Male 4 Female

Suburb takes an insightful, witty, and nuanced view of the world of the lawnmower, the barbecue, and the mall, exploring the suburb's rites and rituals with a four-person chorus (expandable to eight) and four main characters -

Alison, a pregnant young professional determined to avoid moving back to the suburbs

Stuart, Alison's husband, who finds himself suddenly seized by an overwhelming desire to go suburban

Rhoda, the chain-smoking Über-realtor, a perpetual divorcée hell-bent on selling Alison and Stuart their dream house

And Tom, a widower and avid do-it-yourselfer who in the face of retirement has reluctantly put his home of 40 years up for sale

The stories of these four people are interwoven with the Chorus's frequent musical reveries on subjects like mowing the lawn, the mall, and the perfection of perfectly grilled meat

Flexible staging, runs about 2 hours

"A show well worth seeing. Do so now, and later you can say you did so before it was cool" ~ The Washington Post

"A sweet, old-fashioned take on the charms and travails of ex-urban life ... Winning and warm ... a wry but enthusiastic celebration of a typical American experience" ~ New York Post
