After staying in business for well over 50 years, when La Grange’s Chicken House brothel was finally closed, it wasn’t relegated to be a footnote in local history. Instead, the ramshackle operation that once accepted chickens as payment for “services rendered” became immortalized in the musical The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas (and later, a movie starring Dolly Parton and Burt Reynolds). Fittingly, The Playhouse has brought the musical back to the stage a mere stone’s throw from the original locale, giving numbers like “The Aggie Song” and “The Bus from Amarillo” a little extra oomph.
