PHOTO CALL: Sherri L. Edelen Runs The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas at Signature
By Krissie Fullerton
A new DC-area revival of The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas began performances Aug. 14 at the Tony Award-winning Signature Theatre in Arlington, VA. Helen Hayes Award winner Sherri L. Edelen is Miss Mona, who runs the infamous Chicken Ranch brothel, and Thomas Simpson is her love interest, Sheriff Earl Dodd.
Inspired by real-life events, the country-flavored political musical satire is also infused with rueful songs about unrealized dreams, choices made, the passage of time and loves lost. "Hard Candy Christmas" is among its standout songs. The production also incorporates the song "A Friend to Me," which was added when Ann-Margret toured with the show in 2001.
Here's a look at the production:
