“Whorehouse”: Cheap

Signature Theatre is jumping on the Election Day bandwagon. You can now go see “The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas” for $38, roughly a 30 percent discount from the average ticket price. Why $38? Because that’s $1 for each Texas electoral vote. Only in Washington.

“In a neck and neck race, we’re reminded that every vote counts,” the theater says in announcing the musical’s discounted tickets. “So count yourself alongside the girls of Miss Mona’s Chicken Ranch and stand up for the right to get down!” Our Founding Fathers would be so proud.

The Post’s Peter Marks didn’t think much of Signature’s “Whorehouse,” writing “If a night of theater should aspire to take you on a glorious ride, this one feels more like a trip to the carwash.” Purchase the discounted tickets for any remaining “Whorehouse” performance, through Oct. 7, from the theater’s Web site using the code TX38.
