“Forty years after the tennis star Billie Jean King beat Bobby Riggs in the so-called Battle of the Sexes, a local actress is re-examining King’s legacy both on and off the court. Laryssa Husiak will premiere “She is King” Thursday through Saturday, June 6-8, at the Des Moines Social Club. She built the script from transcripts of three of King’s interviews: from 1973, after her victory over Riggs; and from 1980 and 1981, shortly before and after her relationship with another woman became public.” – The Des Moines Register. Read more.
