Musician and playwright Ethan Lipton used the loss of his "day job" as the basis for a new piece of musical theater called "No Place To Go."
In the piece, an "information refiner" in "our town" works for a company that is moving to Mars and faces the loss of his job. In real life, Lipton was a copyeditor, and it wasn't until he lost that job that he realized that it was the glue that held his life together.
"It's a musical, it's a play," Lipton muses. "The music is certainly deeply embedded in the DNA but we are telling a story."
Ethan Lipton and His Orchestra play "Three Tear Plan" live on Soundcheck.
