Hilarious, twisted, sophisticated, schleppy and sad all at once … songs that take the mundane of life and twist it. —NPR’s Weekend Edition
The Obie Award-winning show No Place to Go is “a show for anyone who has stayed up nights worrying that life might go into freefall” and “immensely appealing” (Ben Brantley, The New York Times). Part love letter to his co-workers, part query to the universe, part protest to company and country, No Place to Go delivers an irreverent and personal musical ode to the unemployed. The songs of Ethan Lipton & His Orchestra are steeped in American traditions of yore—jazz, blues, country, lounge—with modern subjects like internet romance, racism, pets and police. It all adds up to a hilariously cockeyed view of an odd, disjointed age.
