East Towards Home

Start time: 3pm
Tickets on sale until Tuesday, January 21 at 5pm!

“East Towards Home” brings to life three generations of Jewish left-wing culture in New York City. The play braids together the annals of the radical choreographers of the 1930’s and 40’s, texts and songs from Woody Guthrie, and first-person stories of a New York City Jewish left-wing childhood in the 1960’s and 70’s. Using loose-limbed storytelling, visual projections and animation, modern dance, and live music, the play 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.  Theater for the New City will present the work January 16 – February 2, 2014.

Billy Yalowitz, playwright, has generously offered to do the 3pm show and talk-back on January 26, 2014 as a benefit for Camp Kinderland if you purchase the tickets through us. Read more about the show here!

If you are not available to join us on January 26 for this benefit performance (which is now sold out), but would like to see East Towards Home at another time, Theater for the New City will present the work January 16 – February 2, 2014. Go to the show’s website, http://easttowardshome.com/, for more details and ticket sales for dates other than the 3pm show on January 26.
