Based on a story by Larry L. King

The saga of the legendary “Chicken Ranch”! “We’re gonna ROMP and STOMP and WHOOP IT UP tonight” at the most famous little “chicken ranch” in Texas. It began in Houston, toured the world and held Vegas at bay for two years, not to mention its remarkable run on Broadway where it earned two Tonys and a slew of Drama Desks. Now The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas is back home at TUTS. Join rowdy football boys, a gun-happy sheriff, curvaceous crazy cheer¬leaders and, of course, Miss Mona with her racy girls. It’s “just one small thrill but there’s nothin’ dirty goin’ on!”
