Barrington Stage Company in Pittsfield will offer Ethan Lipton’s No Place to Go, the Obie Award-winning musical ode to the unemployed, for three performances this weekend (October 10-12) at Mr. Finn’s Cabaret at the Sydelle and Lee Blatt Performing Arts Center.
Composed and performed by Ethan Lipton & his Orchestra – Eben Levy (guitar), Ian M. Riggs (upright bass) and Vito Dieterle (sax) – No Place to Go received an Obie Award and was commissioned and originally produced by Joe’s Pub at the Public Theater. Originally directed by Leigh Silverman, No Place to Go is produced in association with ArKtype/Thomas O. Kriegsmann.
The corporation where he’s worked for the past 10 years is moving to Mars, and Ethan Lipton doesn’t want to go. The work of a truly original American theater artist, No Place to Go is a deeply compassionate musical ode to America’s work force, steeped in musical traditions including jazz, blues, folk and country. Capturing the vagaries of everyday life with wry humor and universal appeal, No Place to Go is a love letter to friends, family and country.
