TexARTS presents The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas
The TexARTS Professional Series presents The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas, a spirited musical comedy that recounts the heyday and demise of the infamous “Chicken Ranch.” The cast features Christina Stroup as Miss Mona, the classy yet brassy madam with a heart of gold.
The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas is a political satire full of flirty fun and gusto. Based on a true story, the show tells of the demise of a brothel located just down the road from Austin. The real-life story made national headlines in the 1970s when investigative reporter Marvin Zindler started a crusade to shut the infamous house that had been in operation for more than a century. The cornball TV personality from Houston caused such a primetime ruckus that the local politicos, most of whom were regular customers, forced the Sheriff to close down the legendary institution.
