The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas  
Old Log Theater The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas
 
This happy go lucky view of small town vice and statewide political side-stepping recounts the good times and the demise of the Chicken Ranch, known since the 1850s as one of the better pleasure palaces in all of Texas. Governors, senators, mayors, and even victorious college football teams frequent Miss Mona's cozy bordello until that puritan nemesis Watchdog focuses his television cameras and his righteous indignation on the institution. Made popular by the Dolly Parton and Burt Reynolds movie, the play is a nostalgic look at a delicate subject, but there's nothin' dirty going on!

Choir Boy  
Guthrie Theatre Choir Boy
 
The Charles R. Drew Prep School for Boys is dedicated to the creation of strong, ethical black men. Pharus is confident and charismatic, and he wants nothing more than to take his rightful place as leader of the school’s legendary gospel choir. But his differences lead classmates to lash out with slurs tinged with more than a little jealousy. Can he find his way inside the hallowed halls of this institution if he sings in his own key? From the writer of The Brother/Sister Trilogy (The Brothers Size, In the Red and Brown Water and Marcus; Or the Secret of Sweet) is this provocative new play featuring gospel music. The New York Times called Choir Boy “vivid, magnetic, and moving,” while Variety raved that the play “sings with smarts and heart.”
