Oregonlive interviewed the playwright and performer, Laryssa Husiak, which you can read here: "BoomArts' 'She Is King' channels tennis legend Billie Jean King."

More about this production:
"Boom Arts presents the West Coast premiere of She is King, a hilarious, heartbreaking multimedia documentary theatre production about pioneering American woman athlete and tennis legend Billie Jean King. In She Is King, acclaimed Minneapolis-based creator/performer Laryssa Husiak and New York director Katherine Brook recreate a series of King's real television interviews from the 1970s--complete with period video technologies, fake potted plants, and hairdos true to their time. As the cameras roll, we witness King’s resilience and courage as she boldly breaks the glass ceiling for women in sports amid rampant gender bias. Don’t miss this unique occasion to celebrate this true American hero and pass on an important part of women’s and sports history to up-and-coming generations."
