While brothels are nothing new to Nevada, one little whorehouse caused quite a stir when it opened in 1978 on Broadway.  The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas was a musical based on the real-life Chicken Ranch brothel.  It scored two Tony Awards and became a movie starring Dolly Parton and Burt Reynolds.  The musical opens at the Plaza Hotel and Casino on March 31.  We talk to the cast about the musical appeal of brothels, 35 years after the show first opened.
