NEW IBERIA — The Iberia Performing Arts League will open the award-winning musical, "The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas," on March 2 in the historic Essanee Theatre, 126 Iberia St.
The musical is based on the legendary “Chicken Ranch,” supposedly one of the oldest continuously running brothels in Texas.
Meet Miss Mona and witness her fight with a Watchdog reporter to keep her important corner of the community open all hours “servicing” politicians, football teams and everyday farmers.
Performances are Thursdays through Sundays through March 18. Shows are at 7:30 p.m.; Sunday matinees at 3 p.m. Reserved seating tickets are $20 and may be purchased at Delaune’s Pharmacy, Paul’s Flower Shop and the Daily Iberian office, through Eventbrite.com, by calling (337) 364-6114 and leaving a message, or at the door.
