About the show:
The Best Little Whorehouse In Texas is an exuberant and bawdy musical comedy based on the true story of a legendary Texas brothel known as the Chicken Ranch, which operated from the 1840’s to 1973. Protected by a friendly sheriff and frequented by politicians, football teams and others, girls came from all over to work and make a little extra money there. However, when a crusading Houston radio commentator and his conservative audience exposed the ranch, it was forced to close down forever. The show weaves elements of country music and a story full of stereotypes that pulls at the heartstrings from a time gone by. This high energy romp will have you pulling on your cowboy boots, box-stepping in your saddles and foot stompin’ along.
