Greater Lewisville Community Theatre is thrilled to present a rollicking hootenanny of a musical, The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas. With book by Larry L. King and Peter Masterson, and music and lyrics by Carol Hall,the show runs June 7-30 under the direction of Rebecca Lowrey.
This charming and good-natured musical tells the true story of a legendary Texas brothel, which operated from the 1840s to 1973. Protected by a friendly Sheriff and frequented by politicians, football teams, and others, the “Chicken Ranch” thrived in the small town of LaGrange, Texas. Girls came from all over to work at the ranch and make a little extra cash. However, a crusading do-gooder Houston radio commentator and his conservative audience exposed the Chicken Ranch, forcing it to shut its doors forever.
