UTRGV Productions presents "The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas"

Music & Lyrics by Carol Hall
Book by Larry L. King & Peter Masterson
Story by Larry L. King
Directed by Richard Edmonson
Special arrangement with Samuel French Inc.

Based on actual events, the romping musical The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas recounts the good times and the demise of the Chicken Ranch, a well-known pleasure palace in Central Texas. Since the 1850s, the Chicken Ranch was known for regularly hosting college sports teams, mayors, senators, and governors. That all changes when sanctimonious journalist Melvin P. Thorpe exposes the house of ill repute and rallies support to shut it down.
