The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas
Vintage Theatre: 4-5 / 5/5

     Vintage Theatre’s “Best Little Whorehouse in Texas” is the sexiest shit-kickin’ shindig in town!
     I had forgotten how much I LOVE this show about the Lone Star State’s famous brothel known affectionately as the Chicken Ranch!

                                          Boni McIntyre and Scott Bellot
     There is real chemistry between the silver throated Boni McIntyre  as Miss Mona, the madame with a heart of gold and Scott Bellot as Sheriff Ed Earl, her common ‘law’(get it?) boy friend.  Thanks to these two actors’ superb work you are really gonna feel the heart of Vintage Theatre’s head spinning, heart opening production.
     Director Deb Flomberg has cast the show with superb actors, who are hugely talented dancers and singers and who really know how to crank out those boot-tapppin’, knee slappin’ country numbers. Rachelle Wood’s performance as Angel and Lauren Cora Marsh’s as Shy dazzle us! Shahara Ostrand’s singing of Doatsy Mae is outstanding. Lisa Young (Jewel) blows the roof off with “24 Hours of Lovin’.”
      Patrick Brownson’s Governor is a side-stepping, side-splittin’ wonder. Chris Gallegos is a hoot as Melvin P. Thorpe. David Ballew and Preston Britton spice up the line dancin’ Aggie number  with just the right brand of sassy.
                                    The cast of "The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas."

     Shaun Albrechtson’s set with its crème colored panels and cookie cutter designs give our memories a splash of Mississippi riverboat. Hunter Hall’s music direction of the in-your-face orchestra is amazing.
     Jamie Horban’s choreography keeps the viewer’s eye moving and everybody’s good lookin’ legs in the air. In short the evening is thoroughly enjoyable. If you miss this one your fun quotient for the month won’t be near what it could be.
     Yee Haw!
