THE BEST LITTLE WHOREHOUSE IN TEXAS

Dates: Wed. 8 May – Sat. 11 May 2019

Ed Earl Dodd, the sheriff of Gilbert, Texas, has a relationship of long standing with Miss Mona Stangley, who runs a brothel called the “Chicken Ranch” outside of town. Illegal or not, Earl does not interfere with her business, which has been a fixture in the town for as long as either can remember. When crusading television reporter Melvin P. Thorpe decides to make the illegal activity an issue, political ramifications cause the place to be closed down. The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas opened on Broadway at the 46th Street Theatre in 1978 and is best known for the 1982 film adaptation with Dolly Parton and Burt Reynolds.
