The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas

by Larry L. King, Peter Masterson Music & Carol Hall

August 14 – October 7, 2012


The Tony Award®-Winning Musical Comedy!

It was the nicest little whorehouse you ever saw.

Miss Mona’s Chicken Ranch brothel comes to life in this rollicking new production of the award-winning musical. When crusading television watchdog Melvin P. Thorpe ogles the whorehouse as his next moral target, Miss Mona, her bevy of working girls and Sherriff Ed Earl Dodd must buck the muckraker to keep the ranch open. A gritty satire about moral hypocrisy and media sensationalism, this musical is the perfect election-year event!

Grab your partner because this show will have you two-steppin’ and boot-scootin’ in the aisles with a score that includes “Twenty Fans,” “Girl, You’re a Woman,” “Twenty-Four Hours of Lovin’‘” and “Hard Candy Christmas,” along with the new musical number “A Friend to Me.”
