SPECIAL RETURN ENGAGEMENT

This special multi-day engagement with Ethan Lipton and His Orchestra includes a reprise of the runaway hit of Convos’ Three Stories High Theatre Festival from 2015 and Lipton’s newest work. Come to one—or see them both! All performances will be held in the comfortable confines of the new Carnahan Hall with general admission, club-style seating, and available cash bar.

No Place to Go

Ethan Lipton is looking for an upside to the downturn—the economic downturn, that is. His character is the classic everyman that could easily be that guy in the cubicle next to you. You’ve probably had a half-hearted Monday morning chat about “them lousy bums” on the Sunday sports channel with someone like him, yet now you’ve learned that his job’s been outsourced to some distant locale and he’s trying to make the best of it, brave face and all. But you know the truth: There might not be much “best” to be found.

In No Place to Go, the OBIE award-winning playwright, actor, and singer Ethan Lipton, with his fine three-piece group, has created a comedic new cabaret theatre gem that mines the anxieties of the middle-class workplace, bagel carry-ins and all. Yes, there’s plenty of office camaraderie and water cooler yuks, but there’s also plenty of universally understood pain emerging in the newly “permanent part-time” future. Lipton expertly guides the whole affair through stories and songs that, in the hands of his band, become a theatrical song cycle of sublime jazz, blues, and folk music.
