'The Best Little Whorehouse' comes to B'way

By

NEW YORK (AP) — A revival of the sex romp "The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas" is heading to Broadway, this time led by Rob Ashford.

Producers said Thursday that the musical about the good times and demise of the Chicken Ranch brothel will return in 2015 and be produced by Jerry Frankel and Jeffrey Richards. No dates or theater were announced.

Ashford, who helmed Kenneth Branagh's "Macbeth," as well as the latest revivals of "How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying," and "Promises, Promises," will direct and choreograph.

The show is based on a Playboy magazine article in 1974 by Larry L. King about a campaign to close down a popular bordello.
