It’s all big songs and big hair in this sassy, spirited musical about a real-life brothel in Texas. Based on the “Chicken Ranch”, the infamous, long-running house of ill repute, this tongue-in-cheek story chronicles Miss Mona Stangley, a classy yet brassy madam with a heart of gold, as her “business” becomes the center of a media controversy.
Thrusting the Chicken Ranch into the spotlight is Melvin P. Thorpe, a loud-mouthed reporter based on Houston’s own late Marvin Zindler. Spicing up the story line is a hot-headed, trigger-happy town sheriff, the Texas A&M football team, and Miss Mona’s racy girls. The Best Little Whorehouse In Texas is a feisty, fun-filled treat. It’s “just one small thrill but there’s nothin’ dirty going on!”
For those new to Miller Outdoor Theater--event is free with grassy hill and free-ticketed amphitheater seatings. On popular events, ticketed seats are taken, but we won't know till after arrival. Even the hill might be densely populated, so look for the tall hockey stick marker.
Free parking is available in the Houston Zoo parking lot. Museum of Natural History has paid parking. If Zoo Parking lot is filled, I've always found free parking on S. Main near Medical Center (be careful though).
If the ground is wet (e.g. rain previous), many members bring chairs, and chances are the group will have a subgroup on the chair side of the hill. If ground is dry, let's sit on the blanket side (please bring blanket).
Chen, Event Organizer, will be on hill near 7PM. It would be great if others showed up early as well. At 7:30PM, we will decide whether to try to get tickets or not. At 8PM, we will further decide whether to try to attain open seating.
Chen's phone number is 281 eight 04 six 246, but it is sometimes difficult to hear rings when noisy. His smartphone's Internet hub is out of action, but usually some member will post updates.
Look for hockey stick.
