A musical about a legendary Texas brothel in Gilbert, Texas that operated from 1840s to 1973. The brothel was protected by a sheriff and was frequented by patrons that ran the gamut from politicians and football teams to regular Texans. The brothel was forced to shut down when a radio commentator from Houston and his conservative audience drew attention to the brothel.
Music and lyrics by Carol Hall. Book by Larry L. King and Peter Masterson. Based on a story by Larry L. King.
