THE BEST LITTLE WHOREHOUSE IN TEXAS

MAY 16, 17, 18, 23, 24, 25, 30, 31, JUN 1 at 7:30 pm
MAY 19, 26, JUN 2 at 2:00 pm
In the PCA Cabaret

by Larry L. King and Peter Masterson, Music and Lyrics by Carol Hall

This happy-go-lucky view of small-town vice and statewide political side-stepping recounts the good times and the demise of the Chicken Ranch, known since the 1850s as one of the better pleasure palaces in all of Texas. Governors, senators, mayors, and even victorious college football teams frequent Miss Mona’s cozy bordello, until that Puritan nemesis Watchdog focuses his television cameras and his righteous indignation on the institution.

“A font of fun and friendliness, engagingly rich in regional nostalgia and spiced with delicate bawdry. The country and western score is a delight.” – Time

Appropriate for audiences aged 16 and up; strong language and adult situations.
