The company where he’s worked for the past ten years is moving to another planet, and playwright Ethan Lipton doesn’t want to go. Part love letter to his co-workers, part query to the universe, part protest to his company and country, No Place to Go delivers a hilarious, irreverent and personal musical ode to the unemployed. Ethan Lipton & His Orchestra perform this OBIE Award-winning theatrical song cycle steeped in musical traditions including jazz, blues, folk, country and lounge.


“...[LIPTON] MAKES SWEET (AND OCCASSIONALLY SOUR) SOUNDS THAT EVOKE A WHOLE, HIGHLY PERSONALIZED HISTORY OF AMERICA SINGING THROUGH ITS TROUBLES.”—The New York Times
