Best Little Whorehouse in Texas: February 2012
Music and lyrics by Carol Hall, book by Larry L. King and Peter Masterson.
“The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas” is a musical comedy that premiered in 1978. Based on the true story of a brothel called the Chicken Ranch, the musical follows the antics of Miss Mona and her girls as they entertain the men of a small Texas town. However, their way of life is threatened when a crusading television reporter begins to dig up dirt on the establishment. The musical features upbeat country and western-inspired songs, comedic moments, and poignant reflections on the place of tradition and morality in American society. With its irreverent humour and catchy tunes, “The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas” has become a classic of musical theatre.
