[Q&A] Des Moines Playhouse: An Iowa Treasure

The year was 1919: Former President Theodore Roosevelt died in his sleep at the age of 60; the 18th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution went into effect banning alcohol for recreational use in America; the White Sox throw the World Series, Babe Ruth is sold for $125,000 and Ripley’s Believe It Or Not debuts.

Oh, and the Des Moines Playhouse opens its first full season.
