    Synopsis: 

    East Towards Home brings to life three generations of Jewish left-wing culture in New York City. The play braids together the annals of radical choreographers from the 1930's and 40's, texts and songs from Woody Guthrie, and first-person stories of childhood in NYC a generation later. With loose-limbed storytelling, visual projections and animation, modern dance, and live music, this coming-of-age piece offers a personal and impassioned look at the culture and history of the American Jewish radical left-wing community, at a time when that legacy is in danger of passing into obscurity.

  • NEW YORK TIMES REVIEW OF East Towards Home

    Traveling Back in Time From the Left, With Context

    Anita Gates

    January 22, 2014: Billy Yalowitz is a young man caught between generations. In “East Towards Home,” his one-act musical drama, the fictional Billy is a Jewish New Yorker, a self-described red-diaper baby (Mommy and Daddy were Communists) born too late for his parents’ revolution. Mostly he’s a Woodstock-era kid who gets stuck regularly in the apartment-building elevator being interrogated by old ladies whose distinguishing accessory is an omnipresent shopping cart.
