SubUrban Decay is an original musical spawned from Bridgeport Theatre Company's New Works program that was born in February when writer Brian Michael Riley got together with musician Christpher Cavaliere (Symphonic Bodega, Dada Mr.) to begin collaborating, turning his book into a fully staged production. Kara and Christian are newlyweds looking to make lives for themselves despite the suburban sprawl of their town, Copper Grove, and all the modern nuisances that come with it.
