The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas--the latest star-studded Actors' Fund Benefit concert--took place on October 16th at the August Wilson Theatre.

The production starred Tony-nominee Emily Skinner as Miss Mona and Terrence Mann as Sheriff Ed Earl Dodd.  Other stars who took part in the benefit included Jennifer Hudson, Harry Groener, Bob Martin, Andrea McArdle, Felicia Finley, Mary Faber, Constantine Maroulis, Richard Kind, and Jersey Boys' Daniel Reichard, Peter Gregus, Matt Scott and Tony-winner Christian Hoff, as well as Michelle Kittrell, Amber Efe, J. Elaine Marcos, Rachelle Rak, Christina Norrup, Angie Schworer, Jen Cody, Dennis Stowe, Bret Shuford, Jeff Lewis, Jason Patrick Sands, Will Taylor, Roxane Barlow, Matt Rossoff, Rick Faugno, Justin Greer and the cast of [title of show].  Rounding out the cast were: MaryAnn Hu, Kate Pazakis, Sue Goodman, Nina Hennessey, Naomi Naughton, Ed Carlo, Giovanni Stella, Darius Nichols, Phil Fabry, Charlie Schwartz and Trent Armand Kendall.

The creative team comprised: Director, Mark S. Hoebee; Artistic Producer/Musical Director, Seth Rudetsky; Choreographer, Denis Jones; Set Design, Paul Weimer; Costume Design, Michael Growler; Producers, Tim Pinckney/Steven Yuhasz.

Originally staged on Broadway in 1978 (and consequently a movie starring Dolly Parton and Burt Reynolds), "this musical dramatizes the real-life story of a legendary house of ill-repute that remained open for many years until the Governor orders the local sheriff to shut it down.  The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas is a rip-roaring, high octane production," state notes.
