EAST TOWARDS HOME Plays Theater for the New City, Now thru 2/2
by BWW News Desk - Jan 16, 2014

'East Towards Home' by Billy Yalowitz brings to life three generations of Jewish left-wing culture in New York City, combining tales of radical choreographers of the 1930's and 40's, texts and songs from Woody Guthrie, and first-person stories of the author's NYC Jewish left-wing childhood in the 1960's and 70's.
