The Public Theater has long been respected as one of the most important theatrical institutions in New York City, and MamaDrama is thrilled to announce that we are partnering with them to promote Ethan Lipton’s NO PLACE TO GO, a musical ode to the unemployed, at Joe’s Pub this month! Commissioned last spring by Joe’s Pub as part of its first ever grant from the National Endowment for the Arts, NO PLACE TO GO is the first Joe’s Pub commission, as part of its New York Voices Series, to become part of The Public Theater’s season. The show starts on Wednesday, March 14th and plays through Sunday, April 8th. Member tickets cost $20 each; regular priced tickets are $30 each.
(No performance: Thursday, March 22 and Wednesday, April 4)
About the show: The company where he’s worked for the past 10 years is moving to another planet, and playwright Ethan Lipton doesn’t want to go. Part love letter to his co-workers, part query to the universe, part protest to his company and country, NO PLACE TO GO delivers a hilarious, irreverent and personal musical ode to the unemployed in this unforgettable evening. Directed by Leigh Silverman (Chinglish director). If you’re curious about the show, check out this video:
