Best Little Whorehouse in Texas was a bad choice to watch with the in laws

It wasn’t actually a movie. It was a live production of The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas. I went with my in-laws to see it about 10 years ago, after they got tickets to see it and invited us to go.

The production was great. I don’t think I’d ever seen the movie, but I knew basically what it was about – Burt Reynolds and Dolly Parton as the madam (I think it was her – still haven’t seen the movie), and they basically ran a brothel in Texas. Well, the production was a bit more risque than I had envisioned.

I was sitting next to my father-in-law. There were two portions in the production that I was a wee bit embarrassed about – and both involved nudity of all things! One was a topless scene with some of the female dancers, which wasn’t that embarrassing. The other was a bottomless jock-strap scene with some of the hot-hot-hot male dancers. I know my face turned all shades of purple and red when they came on stage, and my father-in-law, who loved to joke with me, just laughed and poked me in the ribs. I was looking for any excuse to run out of the theater in sheer humiliation!

It turned out all okay, but I did get a few good laughs about it over the years.
