Cheeky musical The Best Little Whorehouse In Texas is set to have its first revival on Broadway next year (15).

Stage veteran Rob Ashford has been tapped to helm the return of the 1978 musical and will also serve as the choreographer for the reboot.

The show centres around a campaign to shut down a prominent brothel called the Chicken Ranch, based on a real venue of the same name in La Grange, Texas.

The production ran for four years on Broadway and earned two Tony awards for featured actors Henderson Forsythe and Carlin Glynn.

The musical was later adapted for the big screen in 1982 for a film of the same name, starring Dolly Parton and Burt Reynolds.
