From the deep archives: THE BEST LITTLE WHOREHOUSE IN TEXAS, reviewed in 1979

December 22, 2012

On the occasion of Larry L. King’s demise, I dug out the story I wrote on him and the review I wrote for the Boston Phoenix when The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas opened its first national tour there. I guess I got a little obsessed with the show for a while. I did a cover story on Tommy Tune for the Soho News, and I took my mother to see the show on one of the two times she visited me in New York. My review is definitely the work of a young critic (count the cliches — ouch!), but apparently I was a staunch pleasure activist even back then. You can read the review online here.
