The second show in the Des Moines Playhouse’s 2021-22 season, “Escaping the Labyrinth,” opens as a world premiere on Oct. 15. The romantic comedy tells the story of Bud Schlieman, a young American fueled by a passion for mythology. He discovers that all Greek gods and goddesses exist and live undercover throughout the world. He later falls in love with Dee, a waitress who is secretly the goddess Artemis. Bud spends the rest of his life “searching for the one who got, well, ran away,” organizers say.
The Playhouse cast includes Clifton Antoine, Nick Cornelison and Madison Ray, among others. The opening night show begins at 7:30 p.m. Friday. Tickets start at $29. Masks are required to attend the show, which runs through Oct. 24. You can also purchase a livestream for opening night here or watch the video on demand starting Oct. 20.
