The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas, the Musical at Saddleback College!

Posted By CotoBlogzz

Rancho Santa Margarita, CA  The Department of Theatre Arts will  present The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas, Book by Larry L. King and Masterson, Music and Lyrics by Carol Hall, Directed by Scott Farthing, Choreography by Deidre Cavazzi, and Musically Directed by Lex Leigh. This happy-go-lucky view of small town vice and statewide political sidestepping 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.
