During the Depression, the clients of The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas often could not pay Miss Mona’s predecessor with cash. Instead, they paid her and the girls with chickens for services rendered. And so the infamous Chicken Ranch got its name…
For its production of The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas, Signature Theatre is partnering with A-SPAN, a not-for-profit organization that provides life-sustaining services for Arlington’s street homeless, in the promotional charitable campaign “Drop Your Drawers.” “Drop Your Drawers” will allow patrons to purchase tickets toWhorehouse, excluding Saturday night performances and subject to availability, for $40 each, providing they donate new underwear, or any of the other items listed below, to A-SPAN. “Drop Your Drawers” tickets must be purchased through Signature’s Box Office, either over the phone or in person. Tickets can then be picked up at the Box Office.
There are two ways to make a “Drop Your Drawers” donation:
1) Bring donations to the Box Office and purchase your tickets right then and there using the code ASPAN; and 2) Purchase donations through A-SPAN’s “Drop Your Drawers” Target® Wish List and have them shipped directly to A-SPAN, visit the Box Office, present your Target or A-SPAN in-kind receipt, and use the code ASPAN to purchase your tickets.
Please note that donations must be received and recorded by Signature Theatre or A-SPAN before discounted “Drop Your Drawers” tickets can be picked up.
