The Outer Space

Written by Ethan Lipton

Music composed and performed by Ethan Lipton, Vito Dieterle, Eben Levy & Ian Riggs

Directed by Leigh Silverman

Lighting Design by Thom Weaver

Stage Managed by Melody Wong

Ethan Lipton (No Place to Go, Red-Handed Otter) brings a new adventure in bittersweet and hilariously off-kilter storytelling. With music by Vito Dieterle, Eben Levy and Ian Riggs and performed by the quartet (Ethan Lipton & his Orchestra), THE OUTER SPACE follows one married couple as they leave the noise, pollution and overpriced rents of Earth for the vast beauty and treacherous terrain of the final frontier. But can they survive the journey?

Leigh Silverman (No Place to Go, Well, Violet) directs this out-of-this-world musical about the sacrifices we make for sustainable living and love. The New York Times calls Obie-winning playwright and songwriter Ethan Lipton an “expert at keeping music, jokes and personal narrative tightly knitted together into one consistent human package.”
