The Soundtrack to Our Lives...of Joblessness
Throughout the presidential campaign you’ll be hearing from unemployed auto workers in Michigan,out-of-work machinists in Ohio and maybe casino workers in Nevada will share stories of not being able to catch a break. We don’t often hear from the office worker who’s company packs up and moves, leaving them jobless, with no place to go. Ethan Lipton and His Orchestra wrote “No Place to Go", a show about the anxieties and driftlessness of being suddenly jobless. The show at the public theater in Manhattan was a critics pick and is making a stop in Saxton’s River, Vermont next weekend.
By his own description, Ethan Lipton is an emerging playwright and an old-timey songwriter.
