Centerstage heads to a house in Texas

Fun times await those who enter The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas, which Centerstage will present beginning tonight.

The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas will take place on Jan. 9, 11, 13, 16, and 18 at 7:39 p.m. each night. Shows on Jan. 12 and 19 will go on at 2 and 7 p.m. each day. All performances are to happen at the Jewish Community Center of Louisville, located at 3600 Dutchmans Lane near the Highlands.

Tickets for each show are $18 in advance and $20 at the door. All tickets can be purchased at the door, the Centerstage website, or by calling JCC at 502-459-0660.

The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas is based on a real-life brothel in Texas known as the Chicken Ranch. Despite the obviously illegal services it provided, the Chicken Ranch was allowed to continue operating for a century. The local sheriff even tolerated it as the Ranch and its owner also helped out the town in non-sexual ways.

However, outside political issues and a roving reporter may end up costing the ranch and the people within it their livelihoods.

Following The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas, Centerstage will present Wit. That production will go on in February. More information on the shows can be found at the Centerstage website.
