Left of Oz: A Great Lesbian Romp
Feminist remakes of classic fairy tales are all the rage these days, and as any gay person can tell you, there's nothing more classic than the Wizard of Oz. "Left of Oz," now playing at the Ashby Stage in Berkeley (tickets $25), is a lesbian reworking of one of the best known and loved movies of the twentieth century. It's written and directed by singer-songwriter Stephanie Reif, and stars Sarah Mosby as the wide-eyed Dorothy, who follows her dream to San Francisco. In this clip, Kate Raphael takes us to the set of Left of Oz, and talks with writer-director Stephanie Reif. 14:49
