‘No Place’ to go to Joe’s Pub

Silverman helms concert-musical

Leigh Silverman will helm concert-tuner Ethan Lipton’s “No Place to Go” in a three-week run at downtown venue Joe’s Pub.

Show is one of the first projects to be commissioned specifically by Joe’s Pub, the nightclub-performance space that is one arm of Off Broadway’s Public Theater.

Penned by playwright Lipton and composed and performed by the scribe’s band, Ethan Lipton and His Orchestra, the evening is framed as an ode to the vagaries of employment centered on a guy (Lipton) whose company is moving to another planet.

“No Place to Go” seems to share a similar genre-defying looseness that also characterized “Passing Strange,” the Stew tuner that proved a hit at the Public and moved to Broadway.

Silverman has worked at the Public in the past on shows including “Well,” “In the Wake” and “Yellow Face.”

“No Place to Go” begins perfs March 14 ahead of a March 21 opening.
