Written by Ethan Lipton with
music composed by Ethan Lipton and His Orchestra, NO PLACE TO GO was
to sold out audiences at Manhattan's famed Joe's Pub as part of Public
Theater's New York Voices Series. Recently, also, NO PLACE TO GO won a
New York's Village Voice 57th annual Obie award.
The story: The
company where he's worked for the past 10
years is moving to another planet, and Ethan Lipton doesn't want to go.
love letter to his co-workers, part query to the universe, part protest
company and country, NO PLACE TO GO delivers an irreverent and personal
ode to the unemployed.
“Hilarious, twisted, sophisticated, schleppy and sad all at once…
… songs that take the mundane of life and twist it.”
- NPR’s Weekend Edition
“With his earnest brown suits, mournful eyes, and neat mustache, Ethan Lipton looks less
like a silken-throated lounge lizard than he does a beaten-down ad salesman—an ordinary
Joe singing gentle songs about everyday life.”
- New York Magazine
“There’s a singer in Brooklyn who seems to be loved by nearly everybody who hears
him…a singer with the cynicism and heart of Serge Gainsbourg, and the observant mind
of a standup comic.”
