If ever a Broadway show was appropriate for Las Vegas it would be the Plaza’s newest production, The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas. And not because of the “sin” the title may evoke, but because of the incredible entertainment the production offers - the kind that mixes the spectacular talents of Broadway with the avant garde of Sin City. And only Best of Vegas can give you The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas with an offer that’s equally as impressive – savings up to $20 on VIP seats.
To say The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas didn’t show off a little skin would be a lie. But it may not be as much as you’d think considering its title. In fact, it’s not unlike some of Vegas’ other risqué shows like Peepshow at Planet Hollywood or Absinthe at Caesars Palace. And just like those productions, The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas offers everything that makes a Las Vegas production great – skin, music, humor and a little romance.
Based on actual events that took place at the famous brothel Chicken Ranch in La Grange, Texas, The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas portrays the true story of a crusading TV reporter who wants nothing more than to shut down the illegal prostitution house. The brothel’s owner miss Mona Stangley and the local sheriff, who just happens to be a regular visitor to the brothel, set out to stop the reporter from closing down what became one of Texas’s most famous institutions. What ensues is a sexy, fun and romantic love story that you wouldn’t expect from the production’s title.
Prior to its run at The Plaza Showroom, The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas enjoyed great acclaim on Broadway winning several Tony Awards including one for Best Musical. In 1982, the musical was even turned into a film that featured Dolly Parton as Mona Stangley and Burt Reynolds as Sheriff Ed Earl Dodd.
This also isn’t the first time the musical has come to Las Vegas. Also in 1982, the Desert Inn Las Vegas hosted a production of The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas and in 2002
the musical returned to Las Vegas briefly when a tour stopped at the Aladdin, with Ann-Margret playing madam Mona.
