What is virtual cinema?
From 1970 – 1976 It’s All Right To Be Woman Theater inspired audiences as they performed in non-traditional performance spaces in New York City, and traveled to women’s centers, colleges and universities and were seen on PBS. Founded by Sue Perlgut and Lynn Laredo the troupe created fresh and innovative forms of expression based on stories from their lives, at a time when women were beginning to break free from the roles that had traditionally defined them. These eleven women not only developed a new style of experimental theater, but they also contributed to the movement that is now known as Second Wave Feminism. They were seen by thousands of women and men who laughed and cried with them and embraced their message.
This documentary shows a vitally needed picture of 1970’s, which is now being addressed in the historical record. The troupe’s creation and work shaped the lives they lived and leaves a legacy that persists to this day for future generations.
Directors: Sue Perlgut, Nils Hoover
