"Utterly charming, lively and genial."
The New York Daily News

This lighthearted view of small town vice and political sidestepping tells of Miss Mona's Chicken Ranch, one of the oldest and best pleasure palaces in Texas and the target of a puritan televangelist.

Music and Lyrics by Carol Hall
Book by Larry L. King and Peter Masterson
Based on a story by Larry L. King
